This year was Aerospace Engineering. I know other schools have different programs like Biomed and stuff like that but I am so happy they choose Aerospace. It's become my favorite class in high school. Next year is a capstone course where we'll solve an everyday problem with engineering ideas we have developed over the last 3 years. I'm excited!!
I so recommend this program. If it's possible to get into it or get it at your school, DO IT. You won't regret it.
I'm taking AP Computer Sci A next year, so I have no idea right now how it'll be. I'm excited though!
I teach at a district that has PLTW k12. I think it is a good program. Also in MN you can get college credit for almost all PLTW classes. I will require teachers to be trained and there is a cost to the district for this. It is worth some research.
