PLTW Engineering Design & Development (PLTW EDD)
This course is the final, capstone experience in the Project Lead the Way sequence of learning. In this unique design course, students work in teams to engineer and develop original solutions to valid open-ended technical problems by applying the engineering design process. Students perform research to choose, validate, and justify a technical problem. After carefully defining the problem teams design, build, and test their solutions while working closely with industry professionals who provide mentoring opportunities. Finally, student teams present and defend their original solution to an outside panel. This course is appropriate for 12th grade students.
