The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District was recognized as a 100-percent student access school district at the Missouri Project Lead The Way annual conference, held Nov. 5-6 in Blue Springs. School districts earning this honor offer Project Lead The Way for elementary, middle and high school students.
Nearly 800 participants attended the annual event including teachers, students, administrators, exhibitors, non-profits officials, industry leaders and dignitaries from state and local government. The goal was to share, collaborate, recognize achievement and increase awareness for Project Lead The Way and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) training throughout Missouri.
Project Lead The Way is a non-profit organization developed to prepare students for the global economy by providing STEM programs to schools, focusing on project-based curriculum.
