Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is a national program forming partnerships among public schools, higher education institutions and the private sector to increase the quantity and quality of engineers and engineering technologists graduating from the countryâs educational systems. The program offers a hands-on, project-based approach to learning that better prepares students for the rigors of college. The program incorporates math, science, English, and technology skills needed for success. Taking PLTW courses can help students decide whether an engineering-related career is or is not right for them. In addition, students from PLTW-certified schools may, if they meet the requirements, apply for RIT college credit for those courses.
