Project Lead The Way programs at Gull Lake Middle School provide students the opportunity to build in-demand skills while completing real-world challenges in an engaging, hands-on learning environment. PLTW pathways include Computer Science, Engineering, and Biomedical Science. Current available classes at GLMS are Design & Modeling (Engineering), Automation & Robotics (Engineering), Intro to Computer Science (CS), and Medical Detectives (Biomedical).
Grants from the GLSC Foundation are essential in facilitating programs that require many tech tools and consumable items. Students in Design & Modeling create physical projects that include therapeutic toys for patients with Cerebral Palsy, scale model furniture for the school, and 3D printed puzzles. Robotics students use VEX systems to navigate mazes and race each other. Funding introduces new and innovative tools and supplies programs with essential materials.
