STEM = Science Technology Engineering Math

In support of STEM efforts, Eastside Elementary is proud to pilot the Project Lead the Way Launch Program in 5th grade and Mrs. Hall's 3rd grade classroom. Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a non-profit organization that transforms learning experiences for children in grades K-12. PLTW teaches STEM through a project based curriculum that gives students the opportunity to apply what they know, identify a problem, and find unique solutions through hands on learning experiences, the use of technology and collaboration. PLTW and the Goizueta Grant Foundation have assisted in training teachers through PLTW's Readiness and Core Training, as well as provided funding for to implement the program and train Eastside's teachers.

The PLTW program requires the use of IPads for participating students and teachers. Eastside is happy to recognize Google and the Tides Foundation for awarding a grant that provided 15 Ipads and cases in support of STEM efforts through the PLTW program.
