Project Lead the Way lets students taste real-world career possibilities

MILFORD – Sixteen-year-old Ana Demelo ducked under the yellow caution tape inside Milford High School Thursday, pulled back her hair, and crouched over the taped outline of a body on the floor.

She studied the splatter of something that looked like blood, a shoe-print, and an empty syringe, paying close attention to a handful of pills next to a yellow evidence marker.

Project Lead the Way is a national organization that develops curricula aimed at teaching students skills they can use in a career, lay a base for a college major, or both. Classes from the program are peppered in districts across the Milford and MetroWest area.
