Project Lead the Way

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) complements traditional college-preparatory academic studies with challenging career/technical studies, providing students with hands-on exposure to real-life challenges.

The target audience is dual credit high school students taking Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curriculum courses. The five PLTW courses will be 20 credit hours of electives toward the completion of the Associate in Applied Science degree in Advanced Integrated Technology (AIT). Completing these courses (PLW 100, PLW 125, PLW 150, PLW 225 and PLW 295) will result in earning the Project Lead The Way Certificate. Contact your high school counselor to enquire about PLTW classes.

Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a high school project and problem-based contextual learning curriculum. Project Lead the Way seeks to create dynamic partnerships with schools and industry in order to prepare an increasing and more diverse group of students for success in engineering and engineering technology programs. Students interested in math, science, and the human body will find the PLTW Engineering program a great introduction to the numerous medical fields. It will also teach them how the skills they learn are used in engineering.

For PLTW certificate course requirement, consult the relevant Madisonville Advising Plan. Certificates will be awarded upon participants' graduation from high school.

There is also college credits for the PLTW (STEM) bio medical track in biology through MCC.
