For students who are really interested in engineering, especially electrical, Daniel Morgan Technology Center has an option for them. The Digital Electronics class, which is part of the Project Lead The Way program, teaches applied logic through work with electronic circuitry, which students also construct and test for functionality.
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) offers a dynamic high school program that provides students with real-world learning and hands-on experience. Students interested in engineering and other applied math and science areas will discover PLTW is an exciting portal into these industries. The project and problem-based approach adds rigor to traditional technical programs and relevance to traditional academics.Daniel Morgan works in conjunction with both Broome High School and Spartanburg High School to offer the three foundation courses in the PLTW. The Introduction to Engineering Design and Principles Of Engineering courses are offered at the "Home" high school while the specialty classes, such as Digital Electronics, are offered at DMTC. Future plans include the addition of more specialty classes at Daniel Morgan.
Project Lead The Way is a not-for-profit organization that promotes pre-engineering courses for middle and high school students. PLTW forms partnerships with public schools, higher education institutions and the private sector to increase the quantity and quality of engineers and engineering technologists graduating from our educational system. The programs are offered in some 3,000 schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia.
