Dr. Mitra Honored by PLTW

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is a national non-profit organization promoting STEM education in K-12 classrooms (www.pltw.org) through teacher training and course module development. Currently, about 8,500 schools across the nation and representing all fifty states have adopted their programs which introduce students to concepts of engineering and other STEM fields. PLTW also has partnerships with higher education institutions in each state. These affiliate schools provide training for the teachers who implement the course materials and modules in their elementary and secondary schools. Georgia Southern is their only affiliate university from the State of Georgia.

During their 2016 PLTW Summit Meeting held in Indianapolis, IN, March 20 -23, PLTW has recognized and awarded Georgia Southern for its ten years of successful partnership and support for PLTW.

In an award ceremony, the current director of Georgia Southern’s PLTW program, Dr. Aniruddha Mitra, received the award trophy from the President and CEO of PLTW, Dr. Vince Bertram.
