Project Lead the Way
The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has taken a national leadership role in supporting the development of the Project Lead The Way (PLTW®) Biomedical Sciences Program. As a substantial and founding investor in this workforce related curricular initiative, MSDE is addressing the needs of the Health and Biosciences Career Cluster.
In 2007, the MSDE awarded Stevenson University (SU) a Biomedical Sciences Affiliate Grant and selected the University to be Maryland’s University Affiliate for the PLTW® Biomedical Sciences Program. Since 2007, Stevenson University has been a leading affiliate for this program both in Maryland and across the nation.
MSDE’s Division of Career and College Readiness and SU’s School of the Sciences work together to provide the teacher training and professional development components of the PLTW® Biomedical Sciences Program. In addition, Stevenson University participates in the certification of high school programs across the state and offers college credit to high school students at any certified high school who have completed all four courses in the Biomedical Sciences program and meet eligibility requirements.
Stevenson University has a rich history of providing high quality, career-orientated educational programs, and this partnership with MSDE and PLTW® is a natural extension of our collective efforts to prepare an educated, creative, and motivated workforce that will contribute to meeting the global challenges of the 21st century.
