West High School PLTW

Welcome to the home page for West High School Project Lead the Way team.  At West High School, we offer courses in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering.  This is the first year of our program, and the students are enrolled in Principles of Biomedical Sciences or Introduction to Engineering Design (and sometimes both)!  Next year we will offer Human Body Systems in the Biomedical Strand and Civil Engineering and Architecture for our Engineering Students.
 
Project Lead The Way uses an innovative approach of activity, problem and project based learning to excite students about STEM careers.  This approach scaffolds student learning while achieving the desired outcome of confident, independent problem solvers.  We have a fully equipped STEM lab that our PLTW classes can utilize, and classes are often seen working in the lab together.
 
We are excited about what is happening in our classrooms and look forward to our students being competitive in the collegiate and global environment.  It is truly a great time to be a Trojan!
