This fall we were delighted to be joined by students and industry professionals in a conversation about the relevance of their work to STEM careers. Industry professionals from Philips who are at the leading edge of healthcare innovation and the student team who won last year’s Top Biomedical Science Project illustrated the connections between what your students are tackling in class and the real-world problems STEM professionals are trying to solve.

It was wonderful getting to see everyone on campus this October for our Annual Fall Conference, an event for PLTW educators – teachers & leaders. Conference featured hands-on activities, course specific breakout sessions, and networking opportunities. Fall Conference is the major Massachusetts PLTW community event of the year where attendees had 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.
