Project Lead The Way
What is PLTW?
Through our Project Lead The Way STEM programs, students develop in-demand, transportable skills – such as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and communication – that they will use both in school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take. As PLTW students progress through grades K-12, they are empowered to explore career paths, engage in problem solving and process thinking, develop technical knowledge and skills, and build communication skills.
At Eastampton Community School we are proud to offer both the Launch program to our K-5 students and the Gateway to Technology program to our 6-8th grade students. All of our students have the opportunity to take part in PLTW’s hands-on engaging curriculum which allows students to ignite imagination and innovation through learning.
Our Middle School (6-8) Program PLTW Gateway sparks a joy of discovery and illuminates the range of paths students can look forward to in high school and beyond. Students apply knowledge and skills from a variety of disciplines. By tackling challenges like designing a therapeutic toy for a child with cerebral palsy, creating their own app, or solving a medical mystery, students are empowered to make a real-world impact.
Our Elementary (K-5) Program PLTW Launch taps into students’ exploratory nature, engages them in learning that feels like play, and encourages them to keep discovering – now and for years to come. Whether designing a car safety belt or building digital animations, students engage in critical and creative thinking, build teamwork skills, and learn to try and try again when faced with challenges.
