The University of Texas at Tyler will offer 45 Texas Project Lead The Way Summer Training courses for secondary school teachers.

Hosted by The University of Texas at Tyler Ingenuity Center, training sessions begin Sunday, June 4 and conclude Friday, Aug. 18. Information about each session can be found online at texaspltw.org under "Core Training." Cost ranges from $500 – $2,450, depending on course length and content.

"This core training is an integral part of a three-phase professional development program that is offered during the summer on university campuses around the country," said Donna Wise, assistant affiliate director for Texas PLTW. "Each session provides a collaborative setting where teachers are immersed in content-specific, problem-based instruction that integrates science, mathematics, engineering and technology knowledge and skills."

Project Lead the Way is a nonprofit organization that provides transformative learning experiences for K-12 students and teachers nationwide. Through pathways in computer science, engineering and biomedical science, students learn problem-solving strategies, critical and creative thinking and how to communicate and collaborate.
