Project Lead the Way 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. This is a STEM curriculum from the Indianapolis-based non-profit organization, Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Although this is the ninth full year of the PLTW Launch curriculum, it is the tenth year at KP. In 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 STEM Academy has been nationally honored as a PLTW Distinguished Launch Campus for 6 consecutive academic years: 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22, and 2022- 23.
