Project Lead the Way / Computer Science and Robotics

PLTW Computer Science inspires students to become creators of technology, not just consumers. Students work together to design solutions, and learn computational thinking - not just coding. Robotics lessons engage students in compelling, real-world challenges. As students become better thinkers and communicators they develop skills to use for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.
