ST. LOUIS HIGH SCHOOL PROJECT LEAD THE WAY COMPETITION AT STLCC-FLORISSANT VALLEY

January 24, 2013

The engineering department at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley will be hosting Curiosity 2013 on Feb. 1, 2013. The competition will focus around the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum and will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Multipurpose room at the Student Center.

Fifteen teams are expected to participate, with approximately 75 students. The competition is open to any PLTW school in the St. Louis/ Eastern Missouri Area. Awards will be given to the best overall team, as well as separate awards in different categories.

PLTW is a national non-profit organization that helps pre-college students gain the knowledge they need to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. 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. PLTW sparks the ingenuity, creativity, and innovation that are within all of our students.

There are 28 high schools in the STLCC district that have adopted the PLTW curriculum.
