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.
This is our inaugural year with the Science & Art in the Park program. We have started with the PLTW Launch program TK-6th grade. We plan to add middle school & high school programs in the future. Middle school & high school PLTW courses require extensive teacher training and prep time.
Parents are required to stay at the Science and Art in the Park during their student’s classes. The parks are a public location and the teacher can not be responsible for students going to the public restrooms. We have discussed these concerns at length with our administration and for liability and insurance reasons, at this time, we are required to have the parents be on site. We hope that by offering other classes, and having a park location, that other children would have learning activities while the Project Lead the Way class was in session.
