Project Lead the Way Engineering (PLTW)

It's a classroom that's unlike any other you've experienced. A space filled with the latest design software, advanced materials and cutting-edge equipment. It's a place that's buzzing with project-based assignments, like programming robots and analyzing DNA samples. Where facts and figures are turned into ingenuity and inventiveness. Where the four walls of the classroom open up and lead to real-world challenges and opportunities - from energy and the environment, to housing and healthcare, to transportation and technology.
