Project Lead the Way Award BannerBoth Horizon Middle School and Celebration K-8 in Osceola County have been selected to receive a Project Lead the Way Gateway Automation and Robotics program award for the 2018-2019 school year by the STEM Alliance of Central Florida in recognition of their strong commitment to STEM Engineering programs. The award consists of 20 Project Lead the Way (PLTW) sets, VEX Gateway Kit, VEX Performance Tool Kit, PLTW Gateway Notebook, and associated supplies. These additional supplies and resources for the schools will engage students in project-based learning to trace the history, development, and influence of automation and robotics as they learn about mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. Students will use the VEX Robotics® platform to design, build, and program real-world objects, such as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms. Student will engage in hands-on, collaborative problem solving focusing on real-world challenges.
 
“We look forward to the increased experiential learning that will take place for students as a result of these new materials for our school programs,” said Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace. “We are grateful for our district’s partnership with the STEM Alliance of Central Florida as we work to increase student performance and proficiency in higher-level math and science courses.”
