Building a future in engineering
Join 350,000 students in 4,000 schools nation-wide in Project Lead The Way (PLTW).
PLTW is a pre-engineering program for K-12 schools that prepares students to pursue
careers in engineering, computer science, and related technical fields. PLTW provides
a fully developed, project-based curriculum. Wichita State University is the Kansas
Affiliate University for the PLTW Launch, Gateway, High School Engineering, and High
School Computer Science Pathways.
In Project Lead The Way classes, students complete hands-on activities where they
apply and reinforce concepts in math and science while working as part of a team.
Every PLTW teacher completes an extensive training in each course they teach. School
counselors receive training and ongoing support to advise students concerning their
education and their career choices.
