Project Lead The Way provides a comprehensive approach to STEM
Education. Through activity-, project-, and problem-based curriculum,
PLTW gives students in kindergarten through high school a chance to
apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead
their own learning.
The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that jobs in science,
technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will grow 17 percent by
2018—nearly double the growth for non-STEM fields. By 2018, the U.S.
will have more than 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs because there will
not be enough qualified workers to fill them. STEM is where jobs are
today and where the job growth will be in the future.
