East Hardin Middle School received a $20,000 donation from Amaray in October to go toward a Project Lead The Way program. Project Lead the Way implements career learning curriculum using science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
“We could not be more excited to welcome Project Lead the Way to East Hardin,” said East Hardin Middle School interim Principal Brittany Nickel in a news release. “Mrs. Susan Hatfield, our PLTW instructor, has a strong background in engineering and math. Her excitement for this class is contagious. It’s so important for our students to explore new areas of interest and develop the STEM skills that will differentiate and advance them in the workforce later.”
Project Lead the Way is a non-profit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for K-12 students and teachers across the country. Students engage in hands-on learning and explore activities, projects and problems reflective of real-world scenarios and careers. East Hardin now joins more than 9,000 schools across the U.S. in offering PLTW programs to its students.
