Project Lead the Way (PLTW) - Pathway to Engineering

  • PLTW  

    Introduction to Engineering Design
    Year 1

     
    Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects. They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3D modeling software, and use an engineering notebook to document their work.
     

    Computer Integrated Manufacturing
    Year 2

     
    This course illuminates the opportunities related to understanding manufacturing. At the same time, it teaches students about manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation. Students can earn a virtual manufacturing badge recognized by the National Manufacturing Badge system.
     
     

    Principles of Engineering
    Year 3

     
    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.
     

    Engineering Design and Development (EDD)
    Year 4

    Engineering Design and Development (EDD) is the capstone course in the PLTW high school engineering program. It is an open-ended engineering research course in which students work in teams to design and develop an original solution to a well-defined and justified open-ended problem by applying an engineering design process. ​
