This summer, the University of Nebraska - Lincoln chapter of Project Lead The Way (PLTW) will offer a Core Training Institute (CTI) for teachers interested in obtaining a Project Lead The Way certification. Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is the leading provider of rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education curricular programs used in middle and high schools across the U.S. Click here to learn more about Project Lead The Way
- If there are less than four registrants in a class, the course will be cancelled.
- If there are four or more registrants in a class, but less than half are Nebraska teachers, the course will be cancelled.

How to Register for a Core Training session
- For a teacher to register for Core Training, the teacher’s School District must have a completed and submitted a signed PLTW Agreement.
- The teacher’s School Administrator (SA) must register that teacher with PLTW online before the teacher can sign up for Core Training. If you do not know your School Administrator, use the School Locator to search for your school. Your SA's contact information will be included with your school's listing.
- Teachers from a state that is home to a PLTW University Affiliate must attend the Core Training session at that site. In the event the necessary Core Training is not offered (or is full) within their state, teachers may attend Core Training at any University Affiliate.
- In the event the Core Training schedule conflicts with the teacher’s availability, the teacher must contact the state’s PLTW University Affiliate to receive authorization to attend Core Training at an alternate PLTW University Affiliate.

4410 N 36th St. (Map)
Omaha, NE 68111
- Capstone Course - Engineering Design and Development - The knowledge and skills students acquire throughout PLTW Engineering come together in EDD as they identify an issue and then research, design, and test a solution, ultimately presenting their solution to a panel of engineers. Students apply the professional skills they have developed to document a design process to standards, completing EDD ready to take on any post-secondary program or career.
Introduction to Engineering Design (IED): Monday, June 16 - Friday, June 27, 2014
- Lincoln Southwest HS
7001 South 14th St. (Map)
Lincoln, NE 68512
- Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) is designed for 9th or 10th grade students. The major focus of IED is the design process and its application. Through hands-on projects, students apply engineering standards and document their work. Students use industry standard 3D modeling software to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems, document their work using an engineer’s notebook, and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community.
Prior to registration, please read through our CTI cancellation policy.
