Information For Parents
IED is a foundations course in the PLTW curriculum and you can expect the following:
Students will dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects. They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3D modeling software, and use an engineering notebook to document their work.
