Project Lead The Way
Project Lead the Way (PLTW), www.pltw.org, offers a strong, grassroots support system for STEM education and a powerful, national college and university presence to create the best opportunities for students and teachers across the country. PLTW's college and university partners play an important role in our network by providing an impressive and important range of support and services; such as admission preference and scholarships for students or professional development for teachers.
Above and beyond our standard partnerships, PLTW collaborates intimately with a group of institutions designated as University Affiliates. Our University Affiliates are colleges and universities that have an agreement with PLTW to facilitate the delivery of the PLTW programs. They provide and coordinate activities such as professional development, college-level recognition, program quality initiatives, and statewide/regional support and communication. These institutions are represented with either an ENG icon to indicate an Engineering Affiliate, or a BMS icon to indicate a Biomedical Sciences Affiliate.
The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) is a Project Lead The Way University Affiliate.
