Project Lead the Way is a national program designed to encourage and prepare students for the fields of engineering and technology. Through this curriculum, students are exposed to a rigorous, hands-on learning experience. Students learn theory which allows them to solve technological problems in an innovative way. Students learn to use the design process to develop new and innovated ways to solve challenges; and students develop prototypes to learn materials processes and test their designs.
