Welcome to Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Engineering at JICHS!
The PLTW Engineering program is a sequence of courses,
which follows a proven hands-on, real-world problem-solving approach to
learning. Students learn and apply the design process, acquire
strong teamwork and communication proficiency and develop organizational,
critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills. They discover the answers to
questions like how are things made and what processes go into creating
products? Students use the same industry-leading 3D design software used by
companies like Intel, Lockheed Martin and Pixar. Students apply biological
and engineering concepts related to biomechanics – think robotics. They design,
test and actually construct circuits and devices such as smart phones and
tablets and work collaboratively on a culminating capstone project.
All engineering courses are Honors level.
Students must be prepared to work at that level.
