Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a non profit organization that provides the nation's leading STEM programs to schools across the country. Teachers who participate in this training learn to teach K-12 STEM in creative and engaging ways with the PLTW curriculum.
All sites offer the PLTW Launch program for 1st-6th grade. Depending on training and availability, some sites are also able to offer middle school and high school courses. We are seeking to offer the maximum variety of classes within our time constraints and look forward to training more of our teachers in these courses.
There are many factors to consider when planning the route of the Mobile Science Lab. There are some cities and facilities that cannot permit us to hold classes at their sites. Some areas we do not have a great enough student population to warrant a full program. We hope to offer classes within a 30 minutes driving distance from our families. Each year we thoughtfully chose our locations based off of parent needs and park availability.
Each site staffed with a site assistant will offer drop off for 1 or more consecutive classes. Students under the age of 16 must be signed in and out by a parent or guardian.
