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.

    Engineering and Design Technology courses count as elective credits.
