Kindergarten teacher Sarah Black said, “The PLTW training was fun and exciting! Taking on the role of the students showed me exactly how engaging these units are going to be for my students. The units integrate multiple content areas while using 21st Century skills, such as computer programming to create games.”
PLTW Launch teachers inspire, engage, and empower PreK-5th grade students by delivering PLTW Launch in their classrooms. They engage students in real-world learning experiences as students apply knowledge and skills to solve open-ended problems.
“I am looking forward to sharing the PLTW modules with my students. The modules are full of engaging activities and solving real world problems. The modules will enhance learning of my science standards,” said third grade teacher Jennifer Lester.
Scott Elementary students already have the qualities of great designers and innovators. PLTW Launch taps into their exploratory nature, engages them in learning that feels like play, and encourages them to keep discovering. Launch Lead Teacher and Trainer, Faith Shiver, is happy that the teachers now have more resources to implement STEAM into their curricula. As students engage in hands-on activities in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, they become creative and collaborative problem solvers ready to take on any challenge.
