Gateway to Technology: Design and Manufacturing is an engaging Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Engineering
course that introduces students to the world of computer-aided design and manufacturing. Students will experience
the world of engineering and manufacturing first hand while they design and model a variety of projects, such as a
laser cut electronic docking station and a mechanical arm. Students will then manufacture their designs using hightech
(3D printers, laser cutters) and traditional manufacturing techniques.
