The BCMS STEM Academy Leads the Way!
Bud Carson Middle School is excited to announce that we are in our third year of implementation of Project Lead the Way. PLTW was brought to BCMS through a partnership with El Camino College. Led by PLTW teachers, Janet Andrade, Erika Chavez, and Nancy Arambula, BCMS is implementing the PLTW middle school program Gateway to Technology (GTT). The GTT program features a project-based curriculum designed to challenge and engage the natural curiosity and imagination of middle school students. Students envision, design and test their ideas with the same advanced modeling software used by companies like Lockheed Martin, Intel and Sprint. They study mechanical and computer control systems, robotics and animation. The knowledge that students gain and the skills they build from GTT create a strong foundation for further STEM learning in high school and beyond.
