This is a UMass STEM Ed program
The UMass STEM Ed Institute Presents:
Tuesday Afternoon STEM Seminars
Carolyn Malstrom, Senior Director of School Engagement, Eastern
Region, Project Lead The Way, Inc.
"Project Lead the Way"
The PLTW programs are one of seven programs endorsed by the
Massachusetts Governor's STEM Council as an @scale STEM program. I
will provide a one-hour overview information session about the three
PLTW programs: Gateway To Technology, Pathway To Engineering, and
Biomedical Sciences. The Gateway To Technology program is for middle
schools and consists of eight separate units that introduce students
to the engineering design process, automation, robotics, alternative
energy technology, aeronautics, and medical research. The two high
school programs each consist of multiple full-year courses, and
eligible students in the courses can college recognition for their
work through college credit, scholarships, and preferred admission
opportunities. When the middle school program is combined with one of
the high school programs, students have a pathway from 6th grade to
high school graduation that prepares them for a STEM-related career
or college major.
STEM seminars are usually held at 4PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each
month during the academic year in Hasbrouck 138. Everyone is welcome;
no reservations are needed, and there is no charge. Parking is
available in the Campus Center Garage.
