XLR8 STEM Academy students pursue an innovative PLTW (Project Lead The Way) curriculum; which allows them to cultivate their special talents in engineering, mechatronics, and biomedical science. The PLTW classroom is an engaging and thought-provoking place, where students develop critical thinking skills through hands-on project-based learning, preparing them to take on real-world challenges. Students will have the opportunity to create, design and build things like robots and cars, applying what they are learning in math and science to the world’s grand challenges.
