CAD and Architecture - Lakeview, YME, Marshall and Minneota Schools

The Southwest Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Consortium received $33,840 in funding from LYFT Career Pathways to develop and share Computer Aided Drafting I and II for Spring Semester of 2019 and Architecture I and II in the Fall of 2019.

The partnership consists of Lakeview, YME, Marshall, and Minneota School Districts; BH Electronics, Extreme Panel, Action Trackchair, and Universal Forest Products.

Students from the four partnering schools will send students to Lakeview High School on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week of the 2018-19 spring semester for hands-on activities. Students will be in their home school districts on the other three days of the week working on engineering projects and completing assignments for the next face-to-face class meeting. Students will also participate in a variety of business tours at a wide range of companies that employ engineers and engineering technicians. Each student will have all of the necessary engineering software loaded on their school-issued computer so they can work on assignments anywhere, anytime. The University of Minnesota offers college credit to students that pass the PLTW exam. Articulated college credit with Minnesota West and Ridgewater College will also be available for students as well.

In the spring of 2019, 10 students took the Intro to Engineering course.

In the fall of 2019, six students took the Architecture course.

In the spring of 2020, seven students took the Intro to Engineering course.
