PLTW Engineering is more than just another high
school engineering program. It is about applying engineering, science,
math, and technology to solve complex, open-ended problems in a
real-world context. Students focus on the process of defining and
solving a problem, not on getting the "right" answer. They learn how to
apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind to make the world a
better place through innovation.
PLTW students have said that PLTW Engineering influenced their
post-secondary decisions and helped shape their future. Even for
students who do not plan to pursue engineering after high school,
the PLTW Engineering program provides opportunities to develop highly
transferable skills in collaboration, communication, and critical
thinking, which are relevant for any coursework or career.
