PLTW Computer Science Scale-Up Grant
The PLTW Engineering: Computer Science and Engineering Course has been accepted for implementation and awarded funding for implementation for the fall of 2015, contingent upon sustained state appropriation funding legislated by the State of Iowa in support of the Governor’s STEM Initiative for FY2016.

The Northeast Iowa Regional STEM Advisory Board reviewed many applications from teachers, administrators, and non-formal educators eager to implement exemplary STEM programs. The northeast region received more than 160 applications requesting a STEM Scale-Up program for 2015-2016.

This is the 3rd consecutive year Crestwood has been awarded a Scale Up Grant for PLTW efforts.  The Northeast Iowa Regional STEM Advisory Board has been tremendous supporters of providing 21st Century skills to Crestwood students.
