Our activity-, project-, and problem-based (APB) instructional design centers on hands-on, real-world activities, projects, and problems that help students understand how the knowledge and skills they develop in the classroom may be applied in everyday life.
The APB approach scaffolds student learning through structured activities and projects that empower students to become independent in the classroom and help them build skill sets to apply to an open-ended design problem.
This approach provides students with unique opportunities to work collaboratively, identify problems, apply what they know, persevere through challenges, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning.

We believe that a challenging and dynamic world demands advanced real-world skills and experiences.
We believe that every student should be afforded the opportunity to achieve in academics, athletics, fine arts, as well as, service and leadership.
Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects working individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems...
Students explore a broad range of engineering topics including mechanisms, strength of structure and materials, and automation and then they apply what they know to take on challenges like designing a self powered car...
Students explore the principles of flight and bring what they are learning to life through hands-on projects like designing a glider and creating a program for an autonomous space rover...
