Students will trace the history, development, and influence of automation and robotics in this Project Lead the Way class (PLTW).  They will learn mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation and computer control systems.  Students will acquire knowledge and skills in problem solving, teamwork collaboration, and innovation.  

This Project Lead the Way (PLTW) course uses solid modeling software as part of the design process.  Students will use this design approach to understand how design influences their lives.  Students will learn sketching techniques and use descriptive geometry as a component of design, measurement, and computer modeling.  Students will brainstorm, research, develop ideas, create models, test and evaluate design ideas and communicate solutions.
