Certification demonstrates program quality and dedication to preparing students

Bollman Technical Education Center (BTEC) has earned national certification for its Project Lead The Way (PLTW) engineering design and development capstone course.

PLTW, a nonprofit organization and the nation’s leading provider of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education programs, offers a rigorous world-class curriculum that allows students to apply what they are learning in math and science class to real-life activities, projects and problems. PLTW also prides itself on high-quality professional development of its teachers and an engaged network of business, community and university partners to give students the fullest experience.

The national PLTW recognition program distinguishes schools for successfully demonstrating a commitment to PLTW’s national standards. Additionally, certification as a PLTW school provides students with recognition opportunities at PLTW affiliate universities when they successfully complete select PLTW courses in high school.
