PLTW Engineering:

Introduction to Engineering Design

Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects like designing a new toy or improving an existing product. Students are introduced to Vex robotics system to begin learning how to build and the coding language needed to command the robot.

Prerequisite course: none

Principles of Engineering (2018-19 school year)

Students explore a broad range of engineering topics including mechanisms, strength of structure and materials, and automation, and then they apply what they know to take on challenges like designing a self-powered car.  The journey will continue as you expand your robotics build.  

Prerequisite course: Intro to Engineering Design

Environmental Sustainability

Students investigate and design solutions in response to real-world challenges related to clean and abundant drinking water, food supply, and renewable energy. 

Prerequisite course: none

Digital Electronics

Students explore the foundations of computing by engaging in circuit design processes to create combinational logic and sequential logic (memory) as electrical engineers do in industry.

Prerequisite course: Intro to Engineering Design, or Robotics, or Principles of Engineering

Computer Integrated Manufacturing (2019-20 school year) 

Students discover and explore manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation, and then they apply what they have learned to design solutions for real-world manufacturing problems.

Prerequisite course: Intro to Engineering Design, Principles of Engineering, & Digital Electronics



PLTW Engineering:

PLTW provides a four year course sequence that allows students to deeply explore their pathway majors on a level that provides college readiness preparatory course credit.  In fact, students who score an A or B average in a PLTW course and pass the end of year exam with a minimum score of 6 out of 10 can receive College Credit on their transcript.  Students can graduate with as many as 12 college credits from any of the pathway programs shown below.   The following programs provide college credit:
