PLTW – Engineering Design and Development – 9758

Engineering Design and Development is the capstone course in the PLTW engineering program. It is an engineering research course in which students work in teams to design and develop an original solution to a valid open-ended technical problem by applying the engineering design process. The teams will create a working prototype of their solution, to deem the problem as “solved.” The course applies and concurrently develops secondary level knowledge and skills in mathematics, science and technology. Students need the work ethic and self-discipline to meet the high-level rigor on the course.
