Meet Nebraska's PLTW Teachers

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.

PLTW was recently cited by the Harvard Graduate School of Education as a "model for 21st century career and technical education."
