As the Massachusetts Affiliate University for Project Lead The Way, WPI is thrilled to host this annual STEM conference, featuring the latest information about PLTW. This year a conference committee has been working hard to ensure that it will be the best professional development conference for district administrators, principals, curriculum specialists, teachers, school counselors, and interested business and industry professionals. Learn all about the PLTW K-12 curricular programs in engineering, computer science, and biomedical science from terrific PLTW teachers, administrators, and students at schools with successful PLTW programs. With at least four fabulous choices for each session, there will be topics to excite and engage everyone, whether you've been involved with PLTW for ten years, one year, or this is the very first you've heard of this STEM curriculum. We recommend as much participation as possible from your school district on this amazing day.
More than 10,000 schools nationwide offer the PLTW curriculum, including over 125 schools in Massachusetts and 18 in Rhode Island. The PLTW curriculum engages students in hands-on activities, projects, and problems; empowers them to solve real-world challenges; and inspires them to reimagine how they see themselves. The PLTW curricular programs are aligned with the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. PLTW programs are endorsed by Change the Equation.

The October 13 conference details and registration will be available here around mid September.
