expanding STEM opportunities

PLTW-1160 x 400

Project Lead The Way (PLTW), with Chevron funding, has expanded from one pilot high school in Jackson County in 2013, to 25 elementary schools, eight middle schools and eight high schools with PLTW programs. The organization inspires and empowers K-12 students to build and demonstrate in-demand, transportable skills by applying problem-solving strategies to complex, real-world challenges. More than 30 refinery engineers volunteer as classroom mentors in local PLTW classrooms.
