Project Lead the Way- Coming 2019-2020 School Year!
The Engineering program will prepare students to apply knowledge and skills in the engineering field. Using Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum, instruction will include safety, ethics, power, problem solving, teamwork, engineering graphics, automated systems, fundamental electronics and manufacturing systems as well as adhering to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiative.
PLTW Engineering course work engages students in interdisciplinary activities like working with a client to design a home, programming electronic devices or robotic arms, or exploring algae as a biofuel source. These activities not only build knowledge and skills in engineering, but also empower students to develop essential skills such as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and perseverance.
Advanced Aerial Education (AAE) curriculum will be integrated within the Engineering program to introduce students to the commercial use of “unmanned aircraft systems” (drones).
