Project Lead The Way (PLTW), a USA Science & Engineering Festival Partner, is bringing together some of the best and brightest minds in the STEM community for its 2010 PLTW Innovation Summit. The Summit takes place October 20-22 in Washington, DC, in conjunction with our Festival on the National Mall. PLTW's Innovation Summit is a great opportunity to learn about STEM education best practices and interact with some of the nation's leading STEM educators and advocates.
The Summit will bring together STEM-related industry representatives, public and private educational agencies, philanthropic organizations and a wide cross-section of the greater STEM community to investigate, ideate and ultimately to ignite STEM education through imagination and innovation. The Summit is structured as a collaborative three-day forum, featuring visionary keynote speakers, in-depth panel discussions, hands-on breakout sessions and award-winning student project displays.
PLTW's STEM education program has been extremely successful in engaging students in innovation and preparing them for college and career success in STEM-related fields. As you make your plans for the USA Science Festival in October, consider arriving a few days early for the PLTW Innovation Summit. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about how your community can further inspire the next generation of innovators.

It really provides an educational trip, and travel the world, basically being a good example and being peaceable. Think like the Peace Corp. meets younger students and teachers. You will get information from them to go to the informational meeting where they give a presentation, just at least go to that, it explains everything there, and answer all of your questions, and get you really excited for it. This is an amazing opportunity, almost life changing, you won't regret it. One word for you, Go! Go if you can!
