“Gateway To Technology Begins at Ledyard Middle School”
Ledyard Education Advancement Foundation announced a $125,000 multi-year pledge to expand Ledyard High School’s Project Lead The Way (PLTW) pre-engineering program to Ledyard Middle School. Implementation began with Ledyard Middle School’s Gateway To Technology program which offers Design and Engineering for the 2015 - 2016 school year. In Design and Engineering students discover the design process and develop an understanding of the influence of creativity and innovation in their lives. They are then challenged and empowered to use and apply what they’ve learned throughout the unit. These classes will meet national Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). PLTW provides teachers with the resources needed for rigorous and relevant project-based learning.
