Contests Add More Excitement to STEM Program
April 1, 2010

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) has joined together with the Technology Student Association (TSA) and SkillsUSA to encourage engineering innovation through a new program of exciting competitions and leadership activities called Engineering Alliance. PLTW middle and high school students now will be able to compete in online contests and leadership activities that will reinforce the problem-solving and critical thinking skills that PLTW students are already developing in the classroom every day.

Engineering Alliance adds a competition to each required course offered through the established PLTW curriculum. It is designed specifically for PLTW instructional programs and students. It gives students the opportunity to showcase their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and leadership skills through challenging — and exciting — competitions.

PLTW is a not-for-profit organization that partners with middle schools and high schools to prepare students to become the most innovative and productive in the world.

The Technology Student Association is open to students enrolled in or who have completed technology education courses.

SkillsUSA is a national partnership of students, instructors and industry dedicated to the preparation of America’s highly-skilled and educated work force.
