Project Lead the Way (PLTW Launch)
Kennedy-Powell Elementary is one of just a few elementary schools in Texas and across the nation taking part in Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Launch STEM curriculum. This is a STEM curriculum from the Indianapolis-based non-profit organization, Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Although this is the eighth full year of the PLTW Launch curriculum, it is the ninth year it has been at KP. The first year (2013-2014) KP was one of a handful of schools nationwide selected to pilot the PLTW Launch program. PLTW chose pilot schools based on the strength of their science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education programs. Since its implementation, Kennedy-Powell Elementary has been honored as a PLTW Distinguished Launch Campus for 5 consecutive academic years: 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20, 2020-21, and 2021-22.
