Lyon County School District to Add Robotics to its Middle School Curriculum

Lyon County, NV, August 19, 2019 – From Monday, August 12 to Friday, August 16, Lyon County School District (LCSD) educators from the middle schools have participated in a robotics curriculum training by Project Lead The Way (PLTW) in preparation for bringing a robotics grant into their classrooms.  LCSD was fortunate enough to receive the Tesla robotics grant with PLTW at every middle school in the District – Dayton, Silverland (Fernley), Silver Stage, Smith and Yerington. The grant is $15,000 per middle school.  The middle school curriculum, Gateway to Technology (GTT), is being taught to the LCSD educators by PLTW Master Teachers who use this curriculum in their own classrooms and travel the country to share their knowledge with other educators.  GTT is designed for middle school students – it is meant to bridge the gap between the elementary curriculum that introduces students to robotics and the high school curriculum that expands on a student’s interest in the coursework.
