Engineers from Fort Pierce Utilities Authority Visit SLPS Engineering Programs

A team of engineers from Fort Pierce Utilities Authority met with students and instructors in engineering classrooms at Fort Pierce Central High School and Lincoln Park Academy. Building solid partnerships between our schools and our community is an important aspect to quality education.

About Our Programs:

An exciting partnership between St Lucie Public Schools and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) offers students interested in a career in Aerospace or any Engineering discipline the opportunity to learn from the premiere aviation and aerospace university in the world. Aerospace engineering deals with the design, construction, and study of the science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, rockets, and spacecraft. The field also covers aerodynamic characteristics and behaviors, airfoil, lift, drag, and other engineering-related concepts.

Project Lead the Way (PLTW) pre-engineering curriculum is founded on the fundamental problem-solving and critical-thinking skills taught in traditional career and technical education (CTE), but at the same time it integrates national academic and technical learning standards and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) principles creating what has been called      “one of the great models of the new CTE succeeding all across the country.” PLTW was recently cited by the Harvard Graduate School of Education as a “model for 21st century career and technical education.”
