PLTW


Inspiring, Engaging, and Empowering PreK-12 Students

Bringing STEM and Robotics education into the 21st century


Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is an industry leader in providing transformative learning experiences for PreK-12 students and teachers in more than 11,500 schools nationwide. Their cutting edge curriculum empowers students to solve real-world challenges through engaging and hands-on learning projects.

VEX is the exclusive robotics platform offered to PLTW schools, thereby bringing new and exciting opportunities for students across the United States. PLTW’s courses have been updated with rigorous new lessons implementing both VEX EDR and VEX IQ, ensuring that students will run the full gamut of robotics, from design, to building, to programming. VEX is proud to support the following PLTW pathways:

PLTW Launch
(Grades PreK-5)

PLTW Launch empowers students to adopt a design-thinking mindset through compelling activities, projects, and probelms that build upon each other and relate to the world around them.

PLTW Gateway
(Grades 6-8)

Through engaging and collarborative hands-on challenges, PLTW Gateway empowers middle school students to discover what they're passionate about, and how it relates to a career in the future.

PLTW Computer Science
(Grades 9-12)

PLTW Computer Science inspires students to become creators of technology, rather than just consumers. Students will work together to design solutions, and learn computational thinking - not just how to code.

PLTW Engineering
(Grades 9-12)

PLTW Engineering teaches students to develop the problem-solving mindset of an engineer. Students will engage in real-life challenges such as designing a home or programming a robotic arm.
