Wisconsin Project Lead The Way

The Project Lead The Way (PLTW) engineering program offers students an array of advantages, from career readiness and hands-on experience to college preparatory-level classes, labs, and creative exercises. PLTW students succeed in the classroom and in life.

PLTW classes are hands-on, based in real-world experience, and fun for students and teachers. We set the highest standards for rigorous, focused, and engaging study, and develop students' innovative, collaborative, cooperative, and problem-solving skills.
