Royal STEM Academy Participates in Project Lead the Way

Royal ISD

Royal STEM Academy and Early College High School is a member of the Project Lead the Way program in Texas.  PLTW offers a problem-based curriculum combined with teacher professional development.  The program empowers students to develop and apply in-demand skills by exploring real-world challenges. The students learn confidence, communication skills, the value of teamwork, and how to overcome challenges.  They rely on one another to learn and collaborate while developing life-long skills. 

At Royal STEM Academy, students begin the PLTW program in 2nd grade, and their talented and dedicated PLTW teachers guide them in problem-solving and real-world experiences.
