TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION COURSES
Project Lead the Way (PLTW): Students wishing to pursue advanced study in technology education now have additional opportunities for course work through a program called Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Project Lead the Way is a national non-profit organization established to help schools give students the knowledge they need to succeed in high-tech fields. Students who earn a “B” or better and score 70% or higher on the PLTW exam may earn college credit while taking Principles of Engineering, Digital Electronics, Introduction to Engineering Design, or Architectural and Civil Engineering. In addition to earning credit at four-year college institutions, these high school courses have been matched with similar courses at Normandale Community College, North Hennepin Community College, Hennepin Technical College, Anoka-Ramsey Community College, and Anoka Technical College. Students meeting the college requirements apply toward graduation. This usually means earning at least a “B” in the class. This is an excellent way to gain a head start on a college degree without leaving high school.
