The Mt Holly Township School District is very excited to participate in the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) program at the F.W. Holbein Middle School. The PLTW Gateway To Technology Program is taught in conjunction with a rigorous academic curriculum. PLTW's Gateway program provides engineering and biomedical science curriculum for middle school students that challenges, inspires, and offers schools variety and flexibility. Students get rigorous and relevant experiences through activity-, project-, and problem-based learning. They use industry-leading technology to solve problems while gaining skills in communication, collaboration, critical-thinking, and creativity. We will continue to offer, Design and Modeling will be offered to our 7th Grade Advanced Science students, and Automation & Robotics will be offered to our 8th Grade Advanced Science students. Students will envision, design and test their ideas with the same advanced modeling software used by companies like Lockheed Martin, Intel and Sprint. The knowledge that students gain and the skills they build from the Gateway To Technology Program create a strong foundation for further learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The Mt Holly Schools would like to thank Lockheed Martin for providing F.W. Holbein Middle School with funds exceeding $25000 through the PLTW grant to enhance the technology, professional development, and resources necessary to establish these two successful programs.
