Gateway To Technology Begins at Ledyard Middle School in 2015!

Ledyard Education Advancement Foundation announces $125K multi-year pledge to expand Ledyard High School’s Project Lead The Way(PLTW) pre-engineering program to Ledyard’s K-8 classrooms. Implementation began with Ledyard Middle School’s Gateway To Technology program which offers Design, Modeling, Automation and Robotics classes. Next, the Launch program will be introduced in every elementary grade as quickly as LEAF can raise funds. These classes are needed to meet national Next Generation Science Standards. PLTW provides teachers with the resources needed for rigorous and relevant project-based learning. Ledyard Superintendent and Board of Education endorse this project and are committed to developing our students’ skills needed to succeed in the global economy. Dow has recently provided $15,000 and the Ledyard Rotary Club donated $1,000 to implement the middle school program one year earlier than budgeted.
