• Welcome to Our Class
     
    Through topics like robotics and flight and space, students will find their natural curiosity and imagination engaged in creative problem solving. PLTW’s 
    Gateway program is a strong foundation for further STEM learning in high school and beyond, challenging students to solve real-world challenges like cleaning oil spills and designing 
    sustainable housing solutions. Using the same advanced software and tools as the world’s leading companies, students see the application of math, science, technology, and engineering to their everyday lives (www.pltw.org).
