Enhancements Coming to the PLTW K-12 CS Pathway

We believe that all students – beginning at a young age – need access to high-quality computer science education. Computer science is rapidly changing, and with that evolution, we are reinforcing our commitment to providing an inspiring and inclusive K-12 computer science experience that empowers students at every age level, appeals to students of diverse backgrounds, and challenges them to solve real-world problems.

As we advance our PLTW Computer Science pathway experience and incorporate the feedback from our teachers and master teachers, we are excited to introduce two new computer science units at the middle school level and extend the semester-long Introduction to Computer Science (ICS) unit to a full-year high school course. These new offerings will be available in fall 2017.

This enhancement will provide more opportunities to students and help districts and schools ensure smoother transitions between elementary, middle, and high school computer science coursework by providing specific computer science experiences for each grade level.

We look forward to partnering with you to implement these new PLTW Computer Science pathway enhancements and to continue empowering students with the in-demand knowledge and transportable skills they need to thrive in our evolving world.
