Project Lead The Way provides transformative learning experiences for PreK-12 students and teachers by creating an engaging, hands-on classroom environment and empower students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they need to thrive. It also provides teachers with the training, resources, and support they need to engage students in real-world learning. Everett partners with PTLW on professional development, curriculum, and opportunities for students such as the Online Industry Challenge.

Project Lead The Way empowers students with these skills – relevant to any career or role they take on – and prepares teachers to engage their students in hands-on learning. Whether designing and producing prosthetics or deploying innovative water filtration devices in developing countries, PLTW students and the teachers who support them are empowered to make a difference in their classrooms, in their communities, and around the world.
