Green Architecture
Green Architecture is a Project Lead the Way class which builds a strong foundation for further STEM learning in high school and beyond. Using the same advanced software and tools as those used by the world’s leading companies, students learn how to apply math, science, technology, and engineering to their everyday lives.Today’s students have grown up in an age of “green” choices. In this unit, students learn how to apply this concept to the fields of architecture and construction by exploring dimensioning, measuring, and architectural sustainability as they design affordable housing units using Autodesk’s® 3D architectural design software.

STEM 1 (8th Grade) & STEM 2 (7th Grade)
This exploratory class emphasizes the natural link between science and engineering. Students are given engineering challenges where they apply the knowledge acquired in their grade-level science classes.

Flight & Space
Flight & Space is a Project Lead the Way class in which students explore the science and history behind aeronautics and use their knowledge to design, build, and test gliders and rockets.

Energy and the Environment
In Energy and the Environment students are challenged to think big and toward the future as they explore sustainable solutions to our energy needs and investigate the impact of energy on our lives and the world. They design and model alternative energy sources and evaluate options for reducing energy consumption.

Future City*- (Club)
The Future City Competition is a national, project-based learning experience where students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade imagine, design, and build cities of the future. Students work as a team with an educator and a mentor to plan cities using SimCity™ software; research and write solutions to an engineering problem; build tabletop scale models with recycled materials; and present their ideas before judges at Regional Competitions in January. Regional winners represent their region at the National Finals in Washington, DC in February. The club meets after school on Mondays from 3:05-4:30.
