LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette School Corporation is using money from two grants to purchase Project Lead the Way for all of its elementary schools. 

The grants total $70 thousand and are being used for all eight schools to access the launch program from PLTW.

One grant was awarded from the Indiana Department of Education for STEM and the other one came from PLTW.

The director of elementary education said this helps the students from kindergarten to fourth grade.

It gets the creative juices flowing.

"Spark that mindset for design and engineering, collaboration and problem solving which we need for employability skills," said Dr. Alicia Clevenger. 

The purpose of the launch program with Project Lead the Way is to develop employability skills.

It includes qualities such as a positive attitude, good communication and team work.
