Academy of Science, Engineering, and Mathematics
This academy offers specialized pathways in:
Project Lead The Way Engineering/ Aerospace Science *‡ - provides students with the opportunity to develop thinking skills as they design and build solutions to authentic engineering problems. Students analyze, evaluate, and produce models of project solutions and digital circuitry using industry-standard computer software. Students apply scientific and engineering concepts to design materials and processes that directly measure, repair, improve, and extend systems in different environments. (Successful completion of Grade 8 Algebra I is strongly recommended for the Pre-Engineering Pathway.)
Environmental Science - provides opportunities for students to investigate the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, identify both natural and human-made environmental problems, analyze the relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.
Mathematics - provides opportunities for students to develop a pure understanding of the connections between Algebra and Calculus as they learn mathematics through the use of technology and explore careers in the field.
‡ Students may earn a minimum of four MSDE Career & Technology (CTE) credits for graduation.
