Project Lead the Way

Premier STEM curriculum and classes available K-12

Georgetown County School District is offering Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum in all K-12 schools that began in 2016-17 and has expanded in 2017-18. Launch is being used in elementary school science classes, Gateway is being used in middle school STEM classes, and the four high schools are offering courses in either PLTW Engineering or PLTW Computer Science. With the support of a grant from Boeing for 17-18, we were able to expand Gateway and HS Engineering programs to include aerospace curriculum to introduce students to these opportunities near them. 

Please contact your school to see how your student can get involved in these opportunities for STEM.
