Sage Creek High School students in the Engineering Design and Development pathway at Sage Creek High School completed their Project Lead the Way presentations on Monday, March 1, 2021.

The presentations are a culmination of 12 years of the students’ education in the Carlsbad Unified School District (CUSD) and as participants in the programs granted by the Carlsbad Educational Foundation. From Foundation-funded programs like robotics, Science Olympiad, science teaching assistants, and beyond, these projects show the amazing work CUSD students can accomplish.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is a non-profit organization that develops hands-on, project-based science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curricula for use by elementary, middle, and high schools. Sage Creek High School offers students the Engineering and Biomedical Sciences pathways.

Donor impact through the Foundation provides students with a $50 budget to prototype a product for class. Students start with product specifications, build the prototype, and then self-evaluate against the specifications.

PLTW teaches technical skills through product development within a real-world setting. All PLTW programs are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Math and English Language Arts, as well as Next Generation Science Standards.

More than 100 universities and colleges have partnered with PLTW to administer professional development, support schools throughout their state, and give academic credit for selected PLTW high school courses.
