Project Lead the Way (PLTW)

“Project Lead The Way provides transformative learning experiences for PreK-12 students and teachers across the U.S. We create an engaging, hands-on classroom environment and empower students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they need to thrive.” (Project Lead the Way)

PLTW LAUNCH empowers students to apply design-thinking to engaging activities, projects and problems while developing skills and strategies that will prepare them for future  challenges and endeavors. Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade modules are integrated into Library instruction while 3rd through 5th grade students have 50 minutes a week dedicated to PLTW modules.

This year, students in 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade will also be experiencing Arts Integration thanks to a generous grant through Kansas City Young Audiences. A teaching artist will be working with each of these grade levels to bring the arts component to a module. Watch this page for more information and photos as each residency begins!
