Project Lead the Way (PLTW)

Teach College Credit Courses in High School Teach Pre-Engineering Courses in High School
University of Colorado Colorado Springs CU Succeed Program courses are taught in the high school by high school faculty whose education and experience are appropriate for an honorarium appointment in the appropriate department at the UCCS.

The high school instructor must possess a Master's degree in the subject they want to teach or a closely related field and appropriate teaching experience to become a UCCS Honorarium Faculty.
PLTW programs are designed to serve high school students of diverse backgrounds from those already interested in STEM-related fields to those who are more inspired by the application of STEM than they are by traditional mathematics and science courses.

UCCS provides quality PLTW summer training for high school teachers, ongoing training, and networking opportunities throughout the school year.
