Warren Township introduced Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a science-based class, in the intermediate academies. This STEM class (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is part of the rotation all fifth and sixth grade students will experience.
In PLTW, students have hands-on science experiences and solve real problems while researching and collaborating with peers. The students accomplish projects and engage in rigorous and exciting learning.
Students at Creston Intermediate Academy have participated in a variety of projects - an oil spill lab, ice cream making lab, fling machine, and nanotechnology. Check out the pictures on Creston IA's Facebook page.
