Do you like tearing things apart and putting them back together? Drawing or doodling? Design? House designs and blueprints? 3D computer graphics? In this program, students will learn the foundational principles behind the fields of engineering and architecture. Working as a team, you will invent solutions to challenges, be exposed to new technologies and ideas, and learn how to benefit the world through problem-solving designs. Students will sketch designs, learn Computer Aided Design (CAD) software and 3D printing technologies, as well as programming and electronics that will help make design ideas and inventions come to life. As part of both the CTE and Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curricula, students will also partner with colleges, as well as real engineers and architects, to create solutions to real-world problems and develop ideas for new creations.
"This class, when given the chance, can change someone's life. Whether you are engineering-minded or architect-minded, there is always a place for you." - Student
