This past Fall, Bill and Donna Halverstadt graciously donated $10,000 to start the Rockford Middle School Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Energy and the Environment class!
PLTW’s Gateway program is a strong foundation for further learning in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.) The project challenges students to solve real-world problems, such as designing a home that is insulated for maximum efficiency. Using the same advanced software and tools as those used by the world’s leading companies, students learn how to apply math, science, technology, and engineering to their everyday lives.
The Foundation was also awarded an additional $1,000 grant from W-H Operation Round Up to support this class.
Look for future reports on this exciting class!
