Course Description:
 This is a culminating course in the Project Lead the Way engineering program. Students in this course apply principles learned in previous courses as they work in teams to research, develop, and construct a solution to an open-ended engineering problem, guided by a community mentor. They present progress reports, submit a final written report, and defend their solution to a panel of outside experts at the course’s culmination. Approximately 180 to 360 hours of instruction are required to complete the course, depending on the requirements of the site at which it is offered.

Paid and unpaid internships are part of the course curriculum.
