We are continuing to publish new class types, which are are based on real-world classes that schools have hosted using Azure Lab Services.  This newest class type shows how to set up labs for Project Lead the Way (PLTW) classes.


PLTW is a nonprofit organization that provides PreK-12 curriculum across the United States in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. In each PLTW class, students use a variety of software applications as part of their hands-on learning experience. Many of the software applications require either a fast CPU, or in some cases, a GPU (such as AutoDesk’s software).
