Syracuse, NY, November 13, 2006 – Opportunities giving students advanced learning in technology fields are now available at Danforth Middle School in the Syracuse City School District through financial support from Syracuse Research Corporation (SRC). In conjunction with the not-for-profit organization Project Lead the Way (PLTW), Danforth Middle School is currently establishing a program that emphasizes development in engineering, math, and science.
“Since Project Lead the Way’s objective is to prepare secondary school students to be successful in college engineering programs, it is only natural that Syracuse Research Corporation be involved, since we actively recruit the best and brightest college graduates with engineering degrees,” said Bob Roberts, President and Chief Executive Officer of Syracuse Research Corporation.
Tom Wilson, who is Vice President, Systems Technology at SRC and serves on PLTW’s advisory committee said, “I feel it is important for businesses in the area to take an active interest in students’ learning experiences. Project Lead the Way is a great opportunity for SRC to get involved in helping to shape the futures of our children. I am personally looking forward to volunteering and helping with the program.”
Danforth Middle School is launching PLTW in the 2006-2007 school year.
