The Boeing Co. has donated $150,000 to UMR’s Project Lead the Way (PLTW).

The gift, which applies as a match toward a $387,000 grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, will help develop and expand the program. PLTW helps introduce engineering to Missouri middle and high schools by focusing on activities and team-based projects that give students the chance to work with their hands and see how math fits into those activities.
