Research shows Project Lead The Way (PLTW) students are better prepared to find success in college and are nearly three times as likely to major in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. At Missouri University of Science and Technology, PLTW students continue their hands-on, applied learning through student design teams, research projects and more.
Through an engaging, hands-on curriculum, PLTW encourages the development of problem-solving skills, critical thinking, creative and innovative reasoning, and a love of learning. PLTW sparks the ingenuity, creativity, and innovation that are within all of our students.
Students are exposed to STEM careers through professionals from local industries who supplement the curriculum through mentorships and workplace experiences.
PLTW's comprehensive curriculum is designed by teachers, university educators, engineering and biomedical professionals, and school administrators.
PLTW continues to grow rapidly in Missouri. There are over 1,100 Missouri programs offered during the 2023-24 school year.
