Project Lead the Way

We motivate and challenge our students through the implementation of Project Lead the Way (PLTW) STEM curriculum. The teachers set the stage by introducing concepts and providing a problem and then let the students take over. Our students develop lifelong skills, like problem solving and collaboration through hands-on units in our St. Patrick STEM Lab and computer lab.  Students work on PLTW units with their science teachers and during technology class. 

Kindergarten – 5th grade students work on PLTW Launch units that explore robotics, coding, simple machines, states of matter, infectious diseases, and animal adaptations. Our 6th – 8th graders work on PLTW Gateway units that explore 3D design, automation, app development, green energy, and coding.
