About Project Lead The WayProject 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.

Requirements for High School Students to Receive Undergraduate CreditEvery student who enrolls for PLTW UCCS credit will receive a letter grade on his/her UCCS transcript. This grade will be determined by the following formula for his/her UCCS transcript (75% from the course grade) and (25% from the part "C" final assessment) from the project lead the way exam. If the student neglects to complete the PLTW exam this will constitute a zero and still constitutes as 25% of the students calculated UCCS grade.
