Engineering & Design Technology
Palmer Ridge High School is offering a pathway to engineering and technology careers titled Project Lead the Way (PLTW). PLTW is a national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum project. PLTW has a series of courses which, when combined with traditional college-bound high school mathematics and science courses, introduces students to engineering and technology prior to entering college. Students are introduced to the world of engineering and technology through hands-on activity-based, project-based, and problem-based learning activities. All students interested in science, technology, engineering and math related careers will benefit greatly from taking some or all of the courses provided in the curriculum.
