Project Lead the Way (PLTW)


Welcome to Project Lead the Way!

PLTW Gateway A = Design & Modeling and Automation & Robotics

First semester Design & Modeling  starts with technical drawing with dimensions in our Engineering Notebooks. Here we learn how to properly design inventions, build our inventions, and 3D model designing using the software called Sketchup. You might even be able to 3D print your design!

Second semester Automation & Robotics starts with building using our VEX Robotics tools and materials. Here you learn about the different types of gears and how to utilize them to complete different tasks. Finally, you will start coding using RobotC to make you robot move without a handle. 

If you are interested in the Robotics Competition with our Vex Robotics Claw Bot, please let one of us know!

PLTW Gateway B = Computer Science for Innovators and Makers (CSIM) and Medical Detectives

First semester CSIM is all about the inner workings of coding and creating inventions that work with just a click of a button or two. Once you understand this language, you will be better and understanding how these things work.

Second semester Medical Detectives is learning about vital signs, diseases, and the BRAIN. Don't worry, we'll help you learn how to use a scalpel and culture bacteria without contamination.

We would love to see you and challenge you in our PLTW courses!
