    Project Lead The Way (PLTW-DSF)

     

    PLTW is a rigorous  “hands-on” engineering-based program that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) into the same course. The PLTW DSF course is a yearlong class for both 7th and 8th grades that meets every other day.

     

    Design and Modeling: Students will learn and apply the design process, measurement, sketching, Computer Aided Design (CAD) and basic drawing skills.

     

    Science of Technology: Students will trace the history and development of various technologies, and learn how scientific concepts led to the development of those technologies. Chemistry and physics concepts are studied as they apply to manufacturing, environmental sciences, and nanotechnology.

     

    Flight & Space: The major focus of this unit is to expose students to the fields of aeronautics, aerospace engineering and related areas of study through hands-on activities & computer simulations.
