More than 200 middle school and high school teachers from across the United States spent part of their summer at Missouri S&T learning how to teach engineering and biomedical science to their students this fall. The teachers are involved in Project Lead The Way (PLTW), a national effort to get more youth interested in studying engineering and science in college. Missouri S&T is the state affiliate for PLTW.

“The teachers go through a very intensive two-week training program,” says Benny Yates, program director for Missouri S&T’s PLTW effort. “It’s like having a full semester of professional development in only two weeks.”

Missouri S&T is one of 44 colleges and universities in the U.S. that offer PLTW training for teachers, and one of only nine that provide PLTW training in biological science.
