Gillette Elementary fifth grade students Jenna Clark and Antonio Ruiz presented at the National Project Lead the Way Summit held at the San Antonio JW Marriott Hill Country on Oct. 29.

Project Lead the Way is a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for students and teachers across the country.  The organization creates an engaging, hands-on classroom environment and empowers students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills. Through Project Lead the Way, teachers receive resources and the support they need to engage students in real-world learning.

As GT students, Jenna and Antonio have been a part of Project Lead the Way since first grade.

During their presentation, Jenna and Antonio talked about their experience with the organization and how it has helped them gain knowledge and skills in the last five years.

Antonio gave his full presentation in Spanish, which led into Project Lead the Way President and CEO Dr. Vince Bertram announcing that Project Lead the Way programs will be offered in Spanish starting next fall.  

Prior to the presentation, Jenna and Antonio sat down with Dr. Bertram for an hour. Dr. Bertram spoke to the students about the importance of developing their skills and staying curious. To conclude their meeting, Dr. Bertram gifted the students a 3D printing pen and his New York Times Bestseller book, “Dream Differently.”

Both students were thankful and excited about the opportunity to meet Dr. Bertram and to present at the summit. They thanked Harlandale ISD GT Coordinator Anthony Khosravi and GT Facilitator Sonia Cuellar for their support.

Project Lead the Way also stopped by Bellaire Elementary, Harlandale Middle School and STEM Early College High School to tour the campuses and to see how the campuses are implementing Project Lead the Way.
