 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
 American Society for Engineering Education, the Society of
 Manufacturing Engineers, and others. For more information about the
