“Gateway To Technology Begins at Ledyard Middle School”
Ledyard Education Advancement Foundation comitted to a $125,000 multi-year project to expand Ledyard High School’s Project Lead The Way (PLTW) pre-engineering program to Ledyard Middle School. Automation and Robotics was introduced to 8th graders during the 2017 - 2018 school year. In Automation and Robotics, students trace the history, development, and influence of automation and robotics as they learn about mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. Students use the VEX Robotics® platform to design, build, and program real-world objects such as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms. These classes meet national Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). PLTW provides teachers with the resources needed for rigorous and relevant project-based learning. Fundraising continues for phase three which will be determined after the middle school renovation project is completed.
