Project Lead the Way (PLTW) - Nebraska

Project Lead the Way

The UNL College of Engineering is working with Nebraska schools in the national Project Lead the Way initiative.

PLTW's curriculum includes hands-on and project-based engineering courses for elementary, middle, and high school students. The curriculum is founded in the fundamental problem-solving and critical-thinking skills taught in traditional career and technical education (CTE), while integrating national academic and technical learning standards and STEM principles.
