Harlandale ISD students present at Project Lead the Way Summit

Three Harlandale ISD fifth-grade students were selected to present to hundreds of attendees at the National Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Summit held at the San Antonio JW Marriott Hill Country Resort on Nov. 19. They were one of just four select groups from across the country chosen to present.

PLTW is a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for Pre-K-12 students and teachers, partnering with more than 11,500 schools across the U.S. to deliver hands-on programs in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. Harlandale ISD offers PLTW Computer Science, Engineering, Gateway and Launch.

As Gifted and Talented students, Christian Uresti from Bellaire Elementary, Amistad Abundis from Schulze Elementary and Aralin Solis from Vestal Elementary have been a part of PLTW since first grade, participating in an engaging and hands-on classroom environment.

During their presentation, the students talked about their experience with the organization and how it has helped them gain knowledge and skills in the last five years.

“Our students did a phenomenal job presenting at the PLTW Summit,” Harlandale ISD GT Facilitator Sonia Cuellar said. “PLTW selected them based on the schools’ exceptional implementation of their PLTW programs.”
