About Project Lead The Way in MA

Project Lead The Way provides preK-12 students with hands-on experiences through pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. These are powerful pathways that empower students. In order to bring these experiences to as many Massachusetts students as possible, a collaboration among Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Mass STEM Hub, and Project Lead The Way was established. This collaboration works together to support and grow the PLTW network within Massachusetts.
