Project Lead the Way

Project Lead The WayIUPUI has partnered with Project Lead the Way (PLTW) to provide high schools, teachers and students with innovative, hands-on science programs. PLTW classes are taught in school during the school day, and every instructor of PLTW courses receives extensive training as well as ongoing support in the courses they teach. While the STEM subject matter is rigorous, the approach is never rigid.

PLTW Students...

  • Achieve significantly higher scores in reading, mathematics and science.
  • May be eligible for college credit.
  • Earn higher GPAs as freshmen in college.
  • Are studying engineering and technology in greater numbers than the national average, with a higher retention rate in college engineering, science and related programs than non-PLTW students.
