The PLTW programs are one of seven programs endorsed by the  Massachusetts Governor's STEM Council as an @scale STEM program. I would welcome the opportunity to provide a one-hour overview information session about the three PLTW programs: Gateway To Technology, Pathway To Engineering, and Biomedical Sciences. The Gateway To Technology program is for middle schools and consists of eight separate units that introduce students to the engineering design process, automation, robotics, alternative energy technology, aeronautics, and medical research. The two high school programs each consist of multiple full-year courses, and eligible students in the courses can college recognition for their work through college credit, scholarships, and preferred admission opportunities. When the middle school program is combined with one of the high school programs, students have a pathway from 6th grade to high school graduation that prepares them for a STEM-related career or college major.

STEM seminars are held at 4PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each month during the academic year in Hasbrouck 138. Everyone is welcome; no reservations are needed, and there is no charge. Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
