Project Lead the Way

All 7-8th grade students engage in Project Lead the Way courses. Project Lead the Way is a national program that promotes the “need to access real-world, applied learning experiences that empower them to gain the skills they need to thrive in college, career, and beyond.” In the 7th grade PLTW classroom, students  take on the role of real-life medical detectives as they collect and analyze medical data to diagnose disease. They solve medical mysteries through hands-on projects and labs, measure and interpret vital signs, dissect a sheep brain, investigate disease outbreaks, and explore how a breakdown within the human body can lead to dysfunction. (PLTW 2018) In the 8th grade PLTW classroom, students discover the design process and develop an understanding of the influence of creativity and innovation in their lives. Using computer programs such as Sketch-Up and Geogebra, they are challenged and empowered to use and apply what they’ve learned throughout the unit to design a therapeutic toy for a child who has cerebral palsy.
