STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math within education. In Illiana’s STEM program, we do project based learning while applying math and science principles and standards. This is our first year of working with Project Lead The Way, the nation’s leader in STEM education, and Illiana offers four PLTW engineering courses. Three of these courses also offer dual credit. Next year, we hope to add Principles of Engineering.
Our current PLTW courses are:
IED – Introduction to engineering Design – 9th and 10th grades
CIM – Computer Integrated Manufacturing – 10th-12th grades
CEA – Civil Engineering and Architecture – 11th-12th grades
EDD – Engineering Design and Development – 12th grade
