Project Lead the Way

Program Information
  • The Technology Education Department at White Oak Middle School provides students with the ability to approach their education in a different aspect. Our classes are problem-based teaching through projects, activities and discussions to gear more toward discovery learning. It is our mission to provide students with the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions not only in the classroom but a path toward lifelong learning.
  • White Oak Middle School is partnered with Project Lead The Way. Project Lead The Way is the nation's leading provider of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will grow 17 percent by 2018—nearly double the growth for non-STEM fields. By 2018, the U.S. will have more than 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs because there will not be enough qualified workers to fill them. STEM is where jobs are today and where the job growth will be in the future. Through world-class K-12 curriculum, high-quality teacher professional development, and outstanding partnerships, PLTW is helping students develop the skills needed to succeed in the global economy.
