Project Lead the Way

For those of you that haven't heard the news yet, Robin Schott is leaving the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education and joining Project Lead The Way.  Robin has served the Oklahoma Department of CareerTech as the Associate State Director for Research, STEM, Innovative Initiatives, and Federal Programs and she has also been a great proponent of the things we are trying to accomplish with this blog and other forms of social media. Although she will be greatly missed, we are excited about her new career at PLTW and for all of the opportunities for learning and sharing that will come her way. We wish Robin the best as she will serve PLTW as the Market Development and Relationships Regional Director for Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri, Arizona, and Louisiana. Please contact her if you are interested in PLTW.

I hope most of you are already familiar with PLTW and are PLTW schools, but if not, here is a brief summary of Project Lead the Way:
PLTW prepares students to be the most innovative and productive leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and to make meaningful, pioneering contributions to our world. PLTW partners with middle schools and high schools to provide a rigorous, relevant STEM education. Through an engaging, hands-on curriculum, PLTW encourages the development of problem-solving skills, critical thinking, creative and innovative reasoning, and a love of learning. The PLTW middle and high school STEM education programs give students a brighter future by providing them with a foundation and proven path to college and career success in STEM-related fields. STEM education is at the heart of today’s high-tech, high-skill global economy. For America to remain economically competitive, our next generation of leaders must develop the critical-reasoning and problem-solving skills that will help make them the most productive in the world. PLTW sparks the ingenuity, creativity, and innovation within all of our students.
