We look forward to seeing you this October at the Annual Fall Conference, an event for educators – teachers & leaders, featuring hands-on activities from PLTW, course specific breakout sessions, and networking opportunities. This is the major Massachusetts PLTW community event where attendees have the chance to connect with other PLTW educators from nearby districts and walk away with information about all of the PLTW happenings (events & PD) for the year.
