Supporting Creative Learning.


Project Lead The Way

Rhinebeck Central School District has announced that Project Lead The Way’s Middle School Gateway To Technology program will launch in September 2011.

Rhinebeck Science Foundation is proud to support this innovative curriculum which uses critical thinking, hands-on team building and problem solving to engage students in active learning.

In order to implement the Gateway To Technology, the Bulkeley Middle School technology lab will become a PLTW Innovation Zone, retro-fitted with:

  • 25 student computers and interactive white board and computer for teacher
  • PLTW’s proprietary software
  • fabrication tables
  • tools for building models

The District’s Facilities team will work through the summer to get this space ready for the Fall of 2011.

The Middle School Technology teacher will attend a 2 week, intensive training course at RIT during the summer. At the end of the course, the teacher will be tested on the information and become a certified PLTW teacher.
