Project Lead the Way

Welcome to Project Lead the Way (PLTW). In this class...

Students apply the design process to solve problems and understand the influence of creativity 
and innovation in their lives. They work in teams to design a playground and furniture, capturing 
research and ideas in their engineering notebooks. Using Autodesk® design software, students 
create a virtual image of their designs and produce a portfolio to showcase their innovative 
solutions.
Students trace the history, development, and influence of automation and robotics as they learn 
about mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. 
Students use the VEX Robotics® platform to design, build, and program real­world objects such 
as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms.
