    "Breakout Boxes" during Engineering Week

     

    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.
