providing an opportunity for districts to develop a STEM pathway from
kindergarten through grade 12. PLTW programs are aligned with the
Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. There will be
sessions of interest to everyone, whether you've been involved with
PLTW for ten years, one year, or this is the first you've heard of
PLTW. Hear from teachers, administrators and students at schools with
successful PLTW programs. Don.t miss the opportunity to hear keynote
speaker Dr. Vince Bertram, President and CEO of PLTW.
PLTW.s world-class, activity-, project-, problem-based STEM curriculum
and high-quality teacher professional development, combined with an
engaged network of partners, help students develop the skills to
succeed in our global economy. PLTW.s programs include Launch for
grades K-5; Gateway for grades 6-8; Engineering, Biomedical Science,
and Computer Science for grades 9-12. Over 8,000 schools offer PLTW
programs, including over 70 schools across Massachusetts. WPI is one of
PLTW.s affiliate universities and offers Core Training each summer to
prepare educators to teach PLTW courses. PLTW programs are endorsed by
Change the Equation, the American Aerospace Industry Association, the
