In an effort to encourage students to prepare for the global workforce and to build their interest in STEM degrees and careers, the College Board and Advanced Placement program has partnered with Project Lead the Way to encourage students to engage in one of three college and career pathways—engineering, biomedical science or computer science. Students who are eligible for the award must complete one AP course, one PLTW course, and a second either AP or PLTW course of their choice in their chosen pathway.
