    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

    The Engineering Academy seeks to expose students to a wide variety of
    engineering fields, topics, and career paths. The course content in each
    school of study is acquired from Project Lead the Way (PLTW), the
    nation’s champion in the development of rigorous and relevant science,
    technology, and engineering curricula. Teachers attend an intense
    certification course in order to be eligible to deliver PLTW courses. Most
    engineering teachers in each school also have previous work experience
    in the field in which they are teaching. Engineering courses focus on
    hands-on learning and application, which meets the learning style needs
    of students interested in these fields. Students design and build model
    homes, computer games, and gliders, for example, all while learning the
    foundations of engineering in their chosen area of study.
