Gateway To Technology® Program
The PLTW® Gateway To Technology® program is divided into five independent nine-week courses developed for grades six through eight. GTT is taught in conjunction with a rigorous academic curriculum and is designed to challenge and engage the natural curiosity of students.
Design and Modeling™ (DM)
The Magic of Electrons™ (ME)
The Science of Technology™ (ST)
Automation and Robotics™ (AR)
Flight and Space™ (FS)
GTT harnesses the enthusiasm and energy of middle school students. The program focuses on showing, not telling, students how to use engineering skills to solve everyday problems. Students won’t ask, “Will I ever have to use this in real life?” because they will be applying their skills as they learn them. The primary focus is on stronger math, science, and technology inquiry skills.
