Forging New Generations of Engineers
Students participating in PLTW courses are better prepared for college engineering programs and more likely to be successful, thus reducing the attrition rate in these college programs, which currently exceeds 50 percent nationally.
"Schools that offer PLTW open doors for students, who would otherwise never contemplate the idea of being an engineer, and also provide valuable technical skills that have the ability to transcend into their future careers."
