Last year, Project Lead the Way (PLTW) was introduced at FZ middle schools, where every sixth grader now takes an introductory coding class. Hear from Computer Science teachers about the skills students are carrying beyond the PLTW classroom and see why FZSD high schools are recognized as PLTW Distinguished Schools in this FORTiTUDE podcast.
