    GTT: Design and Manufacturing

    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.
