Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is geared towards helping middle school and high school students who are interested in a career in engineering and technology. Project Lead the Way partners with higher educational institutions to promote pre-engineering courses in the nation’s high schools, and provides an integrated math, science, and technology curriculum in the middle schools.
As a State of New Jersey Affiliate to Project Lead the Way, Rowan University will:
- Conduct three phases of technical assistance for those participating in PLTW, most of which is related to curriculum and instruction for middle school and high school personnel
- Implement the PLTW certification process for participating schools
- Conduct a variety of promotional and awareness programs for school counselors.
Project Lead the Way offers resources to high school and middle school teachers that strengthens student opportunities in engineering or science throughout the state, and the College of Engineering is pleased to support this program.
