PLTW Engineering Students Become Tomorrow's Problem Solvers Today
From launching space explorations to delivering safe, clean water to communities, engineers find solutions to pressing problems and turn their ideas into reality. PLTW Engineering empowers students to step into the role of an engineer, adopt a problem-solving mindset, and make the leap from dreamers to doers. The program’ s courses engage students in compelling, real-world challenges that help them become better collaborators and thinkers. Students take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.
PLTW Engineering courses are part of the AP + PLTW engineering pathway.
Building a Strong Foundation for College and Career
Each PLTW Engineering course engages students in interdisciplinary
activities like working with a client to design a home, programming
electronic devices or robotic arms, or exploring algae as a biofuel
source. These activities not only build knowledge and skills in
engineering, but also empower students to develop essential skills such
as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, communication,
collaboration, and perseverance.
