How do these classes help me?

Dennis Parker, Toyota North America: "PLTW has the best STEM curriculum for schools in the world. We have examined what other countries have to offer and there is none better within the scope of my experience. PLTW would not be a partner with Toyota if its curriculum was anything less."

Lockheed Martin Executive Jim Knotts says, "PTLW's track record of preparing students for college engineering programs is unparalleled."


Are there other benefits to me in the Engineering pathway?

YES! More than 20 universities recognize PLTW high school students by offering college credit benefits. This varies with each university. WSU offers students 6 college credits based on successful completion of high school PLTW courses.
