PLTW Affiliate Institute, San Diego State University
Promotes engineering, technology and biomedical science courses for middle school and high school students. There are over 235 middle and high schools in California enrolled in the program and we are rapidly growing.
Project Lead The Way Named to Elite List of STEM Organizations.
One of four organizations nationally recognized for outstanding quality
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) has been nationally recognized as one of just four high-quality STEM programs that are immediately scalable on a national level. Of the four programs selected, PLTW is the only in-school STEM curricular program for elementary, middle, and high school students and the only program offering a comprehensive professional development model for teachers.
Change the Equation (CTEq) – a nonprofit, nonpartisan, CEO-led initiative that is mobilizing the business community to improve K-12 STEM learning in the United States – made the announcement via a press release Thursday. It is a significant honor for PLTW, which was already admitted to CTEq’s STEMworks database of high-quality STEM programs addressing the U.S. STEM skills shortage by consistently yielding positive outcomes for students. Through this new recognition, CTEq is signaling to the business community that PLTW is worthy of support as companies look to make smart investments in organizations that are proven to impact students.
PLTW Teachers of the Year are announced at the State Conference. Congratulations go out to:
Charisse Williams, Engineering
Dale Waldo, Gateway
Ellie Vandiver, Biomedical Science
