Preparing Teachers to Transform
the Classroom Experience

What is Purdue PLTW?

Purdue Polytechnic is an affiliate partner with Project Lead The Way (PLTW). We offer core training to elementary, middle school, and high school teachers each summer on the Purdue main campus in West Lafayette.

Benefits for teachers

K-12 teachers will learn effective teaching methods and explore course materials in-depth with certified Master Teacher instructors. You can get your Core Training certifications for Engineering, Computer Science, and Launch pathways/programs.

Also, download a complimentary STEM lesson plan from a Purdue Polytechnic’s professor in the Engineering - Technology Teacher Education program.

Benefits for Students

High School students not only learn valuable lessons through the rigorous courses they take in K-12 schools but also may earn college credits transferable to Purdue upon successful high school course completion. Learn which majors in the Purdue Polytechnic accept PLTW courses.
