Project Lead The Way®

PLTW® is a four-year program designed to prepare students for engineering and design careers.  The hands-on project and problem-based approach adds rigor to traditional technical programs and relevance to traditional academics.  Learn more about PLTW

PLTW’s curriculum makes math and science relevant for students. By engaging in hands-on, real-world projects, students understand how the skills they are learning in the classroom can be applied in everyday life. This approach is called activities-based learning, project-based learning, and problem-based learning or APPB-learning.


For students interested in engineering, biomechanics, aeronautics, and other applied math and science arenas, PLTW® is an exciting portal into these industries.
