9162 Grades 9, 10, 11, 12 Honors 1 creditPrerequisite: Currently maintaining 85%+ average in MathCourse meets the graduation requirement of one credit for Art/Music.Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects. They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3D modeling software, and use an engineering notebook work. Software utilized: Autodesk Inventor.Students will be required to apply for membership in the Engineering Academy at the end of this course to continue in PLTW courses.
9172 Grades 10, 11, 12 Honors 1 creditPrerequisite: Honors DDP/Engineering or teacher permission from DDP Tech. Permanent or probationary acceptance into the PLTW Engineering Academy.Through problems that engage and challenge, students explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of structures and materials, and automation. Students develop skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process documentation, collaboration, and presentation.
9130 Grades 10, 11, 12 Honors 1 creditPrerequisite: Honors DDP/Engineering or teacher permission from DDP Tech. Permanent or probationary acceptance into the PLTW Engineering Academy.Manufactured items are part of everyday life, yet most students have not been introduced to the high-tech, innovative nature of modern manufacturing. This course illuminates the opportunities related to understanding manufacturing. At the same time, it teaches students about manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation.
9120 Grades 11, 12 Honors 1 creditPrerequisites: Honors DDP/Engineering and POE. Can take POE or CIM concurrently. Successful completion or concurrent enrollment in Geometry. Permanent or probationary acceptance into the PLTW Engineering Academy.From smart phones to appliances, digital circuits are all around us. This course provides a foundation for students who are interested in electrical engineering, electronics, or circuit design. Students study topics such as combinational and sequential logic and are exposed to circuit design tools used in industry, including logic gates, integrated circuits, and programmable logic devices.
Possible career opportunities consist of Digital Electronics Engineers/Technicians, ranging from designing and manufacturing electrical systems to installing to repairing them. Digital electronic engineers design an assortment of electronic equipment, such as control systems, music players and global positioning systems.

EDD is a college preparatory course designed to prepare students for the rigor of an engineering program. Students will work in one team for the entire school year to solver a real-world problem. In addition to completing a design project, students will learn valuable skills for cometing in a demanding college environment. Student grades will be based on a combination of individual and group work.
9129 Grades 10, 11, 12 Honors 1 creditThis course is open to all sophomore level and above PLTW, Math or Science majors. Any student with an interest in computer programming sciences is welcome.Open doors in any career with computer science! CSE implements the College Board’s 2013 CS Principles framework. Using Python® as a primary tool and incorporating multiple platforms and languages for computation, this course aims to develop computational thinking, generate excitement about career paths that utilize computing, and introduce professional tools that foster creativity and collaboration. In CSE, students create apps for mobile devices, automate tasks in a variety of languages, and find patterns in data. Students collaborate to create and present solutions that can improve people’s lives, and weigh the ethical and societal issues of how computing and connectivity are changing the world.

This is the introductory course of the Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences program. In this hands-on, problem-based, real-world application course students will explore the human body systems and various diseases as they investigate the death of a fictional person. While investigating the case, students examine autopsy reports, investigate medical history, and explore medical treatments that might have prolonged the person’s life. Student’s work includes: the study of human medicine, research processes, bioinformatics, the use of computer science, mathematics, modeling and analyzing biological systems.
