What is Project Lead The Way?
  • PLTW is a not-for-profit organization.
  • PLTW partners with public schools, higher
    education institutions and the private sector to
    grow the nations technology workforce.

4
PLTWs Three Keys to Success
  • Curricula - Rigorous and Relevant middle and high
    school engineering courses (with college credit
    options) that use problem-based learning. Its
    free to participants, …
  • Professional Development High-quality,
    rigorous, continuing, and course-specific teacher
    training, …
  • Counselor Conferences Full-day training on the
    program and courses.

5
PLTWs Curriculum
  • Aligns key learning concepts to national learning
    standards
  • Includes
  • day-by-day lessons
  • support and enrichment activities
  • course vocabulary
  • instructional resources including numerous
    PowerPoint presentations
  • evaluation and assessment tools aligned to the
    key concepts

6
The Focus of PLTW is Problem-Based Learning
  • Students do authentic real-world work and may
    work in teams like real engineers.
  • Learning is contextualnot a disjointed series of
    concepts.
  • Expectations are clearly articulated.

Activities and projects have predictable outcomes.
Problems have unpredictable results.
7
PLTW Students Learn the Real World Skills
Required by Engineers
  • Solve problems
  • Cope with failure and try again
  • Work in Teams
  • Listen and work in Teams
  • Analyze information
  • Manage Time to meet deadlines
  • Have fun while working hard
  • Communicate verbally and in writing
  • Conduct Research

8
What Students do Well in PLTW? The student who is
  • Creative- Likes to design things.
  • In the upper 80 of their class
  • A hands-on learner.
  • An underachiever who might get hooked by an
    interesting, project-based class.
  • Interested in computers, science, or technology.
  • Good in math and science.

  • Why Do We Need Scientists, Technologists,
    Engineers?

Why Do We Need PLTW?
  • There are currently 1.3 M engineering/engineering
    technology jobs available in the U.S. without
    trained people to fill them.
  • According to the Federal Government we will need
    15 million engineers and technology workers by
    2020.

12
Are We Training the Engineers and Technicians We
Need?
Associate Degrees
Bachelor Degrees
13
Science and Technology in Our Society
Manufacturing
Test and Evaluation
Routine Design
Development
Engineering Technology
Complex Design
Production
Operation, Service, And Maintenance
Complex Analysis
Engineering
Distribution and Sales
Research
Our colleges and universities are well aligned
with this… But how is this connected to high
schools?
14
Science and Technology in Many High Schools
Engineering Technology
Wood shop, Auto shop, Machine shop Drafting
Chemistry, Physics, Biology
Engineering
There is no Engineering!
15
What Can We Do?
Make a small change in the culture of American
high schools by
  • Strengthening the core academic curricula, (e.g.
    English, math, science, social studies, etc.)
  • Adding a rigorous, technical, standards-based
    program of study in engineering and technology,
    leading to jobs, trade schools, 2-year, 4-year
    and post graduate degrees.
