Project Lead the Way

Project Lead the Way Problem solving using engineering principles

In 2009-2010, Caddo Parish Schools (CPPS) launched new programs at Captain Shreve High School and its feeder Youree Drive Middle School that encourages and challenges students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines. Project Lead the Way® (PLTW) began in New York State in 1997 and has been adopted by 3,500 schools in all 50 states. PLTW is an activity-driven approach to learning that encourages students to solve problems on their own or in groups.

PLTW Modules Include: Gateway to Technology
Curriculum activities: Design and molding, automation and robotics, energy and environment, flight and space, science of technology, and the magic of electrons

 

  • Captain Shreve High School (Grades 9-12)
