There are over 100 high schools in the East Bay who are implementing a common Project Lead The Way (PLTW) curriculum in Engineering, BioMedical and Computer Sciences. The educators in these high schools rarely have an opportunity to talk with their colleagues about best practices, challenges and needs in order to strengthen the delivery of this rigorous relevant curriculum.
PLTW Dinner & Dialogue (D & D) events in the fall and spring were developed in 2011 to help our teachers connect with one another focused on curriculum delivery as well as to learn about trends in the industry, prerequisite skill sets and post-secondary education and training students need in order to access high quality STEM careers in our regional economy.
Our dinner series is always offered in a business setting to help teachers connect to real people doing real things in the local economy. This teacher opportunity is made possible through a generous grant from Chevron. If you are interested in learning more about ways in which you can get involved, please let us know. We would welcome your involvement.
Recent D & D meetings focused on the following subjects:
- CLIMATE CHANGE
- CYBER SECURITY
- BUILD CALIFORNIA
- CONVERGENCE OF BIOMED, ENGINEEERING & MANUFACTURING
- STEM CELL RESEARCH
