The teachers attended one of four Project Lead The Way summer camps at Missouri S&T. PLTW is a national, non-profit organization that provides instructional programs designed to spark the interest of pre-college students so they will pursue those subjects in college.

Missouri S&T is the state affiliate for PLTW and the only university in the nation to offer PLTW training in both engineering and biomedical science.
