Engineering Pathway

The Engineering Pathway challenges students to create, design, build, discover, collaborate and solve problems. The curriculum requires students to engage in various activities, projects, and problem-based learning through hands-on classroom experiences.

St. John Bosco’s Engineering Pathway has adopted the nationally recognized program of Project Lead The Way (PLTW) which provides a rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) high school curriculum. Throughout the courses, students learn and apply the design process, develop strong collaboration and communication skills, and cultivate critical-thinking and problem solving skills. As a result, students completing the PLTW curriculum are well prepared to complete a post-secondary education and pursue a career in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.
