Science & Engineering

Sandwich High School students now have unprecedented opportunities to explore and develop an interest and some expertise in problem-solving and innovation through engineering and science. The department is not only offering course work in overarching scientific theory (science), but also the practical use of that theory at work in today's world (engineering). Project Lead The Way (PLTW) “Pathways” have been implemented to give students who are interested in possible careers in Engineering or Bio-Medical fields the opportunity to take specific coursework that would create a pathway to career and/or college. Laboratory work is a vital part of the science program.
