About Project Lead The Way

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is a national program forming partnerships among public schools, higher education institutions and the private sector in order to encourage students to expand upon their knowledge in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Through Pre-Engineering and Biomedical Sciences courses in high schools, and an integrated math, science, and technology curriculum in middle schools, the program seeks to provide students with the critical reasoning and problem-solving skills that will help them become successful leaders and to increase the quantity and quality of engineering and science students graduating from our educational system.

How to Apply to Project Lead The Way (PLTW)

Spring 2014 PLTW

Requirements for High School Students to Receive Undergraduate Credit

UCCS PLTW Concurrent Enrollment Credit Grading Policy
In an effort to streamline the scoring process across schools and districts for PLTW's End of Course Assessment (EoC), it has been determined by the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) that PLTW's EoC Assessment will not be used to calculate a student's final course grade. Although the EoC Assessment is one of many useful tools to gauge student success, it will not be a factor in determining concurrent credit grades granted by UCCS. Concurrent credit will be computed by the calculation of 75% course content and 25% final exam, created and administered by the PLTW teacher. The EoC Assessment will continue to be given at the end of the year as data will be collected and analyzed by PLTW for statistical purposes.

Colorado Affiliate University for Project Lead The Way Since 2003

The University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) is the Colorado Affiliate University for Project Lead The Way.

UCCS provides quality PLTW summer training for middle school and high school teachers, ongoing training, and networking opportunities throughout the school year. The campus also provides college engineering graduate credit opportunities for those middle and high school teachers that participate in summer training, and undergraduate engineering credit opportunities for high school students in PLTW-certified schools.
