What is LAUNCH?
Launch is a collaborative environment where students develop critical thinking skills to solve real-world problems in science and engineering. The highly engaged students are eager to explain their ideas, and they quickly learn that mistakes are OK! The goal of Launch is to encourage higher-order thinking skills that transfer to all subject areas. Project Lead the Way has existed in high schools for years, so Launch was developed to create a K-12 continuum that prepares students for a global economy. We want students to pursue careers in science and mathematics. And most importantly we want students to acquire a passion for learning and a curiosity about the world around them.
