Project Lead The Way(PLTW) is a class that we take as 8th grades to explore all the pathways to get a peek of what each pathway would be like. The pathways we have here at ARS are Engineering, Bio-med, and Media tech. Next year in 9th grade we take one of the three pathways.
Engineering is one of the three pathways we can take in 9th and thought height school. In PLTW for engineering, the modules we have are materials, computer automated drafting, construction and fabrication, mechanical systems, and computer science. Each module is different from the other modules. Some you may use wood and nails, toothpicks and glue, inventor, tools, gears, laser cutter and little bits. Engineering is all so fun , but we still have two more pathways to get through.
Media tech is also one of the three pathways we can take in high school. For Media tech, the modules we have are blogging, videography, and photography. In each one you are either creating a blog, making a video, or taking photos. Okay, so we gotten through engineering and media tech but we still have bio-med.
Bio-med is also one of the three pathways we can take in high school. For Bio-med, the modules we have are simulation applications in medicine, prosthetic, medical robotics. In each one you are either creating a prosthetic, a simulation demonstrations presentation, or designing a medical robot.
Now we have gotten through all pathways and models that we can do with in those pathways.
