PLTW's programs emphasize critical thinking, creativity, innovation and real-world problem solving. The hands-on learning engages students on multiple leves, exposes them to areas of study that they may not otherwise pursue, and provides them with a foundation and proven path to post-secondary training and career success in STEM-related fields.

Through engineering, students create, design, build, discover, collaborate and solve problems while applying what they learn in math and science. Our engineering program engages students in activities, projects, and problem-based (APPB) learning, which provide hands-on classroom experiences. ERHS offers classes from the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) curriculum.

PLTW is the leading U.S. provider of rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education programs. As a certified PLTW school, ERHS students have the opportunity to earn college credit for engineering courses by obtaining a passing score on the end of course exam coupled with approval from the college.
