• Engineering and Computer Science

    The goal of the Engineering & Computer Science Department in Edina Public Schools is to help students build their problem solving and computational thinking skills. This is accomplished by starting with foundation level courses leading to specialized courses. Students canProject Lead the Way choose their pathway through these courses to develop interest and skills in these fields.

    Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a national program that "provides transformative learning experiences for PreK-12 students and teachers across the U.S. We create an engaging, hands-on classroom environment and empower students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they need to thrive."
