Technology & Engineering Lead Teacher

Mr. Steve Schlegel

Technology & Engineering Education is an integrating discipline that provides students with an opportunity to study the human-made world and to develop technological literacy as part of their fundamental education here at Canandaigua City School District. Through design, build and test activities students model solutions to real world problems and develop an understanding of technology in the past, present and future. Technology & Engineering Education is much more than just knowledge about computers and their application. Our Technology program engages learners in critical thinking as they design and develop products, systems and environment to solve practical problems. When a student leaves our program they will possess a variety of marketable skills for the real world.

What is Project Lead the Way?

Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a not-for-profit organization that promotes pre-engineering course for middle school and high school students, to address the workforce shortage for engineers. This program has expanded to more than 1251 schools in 44 states since 1997. The PLTW curriculum is a four-year, flexible sequence of pre-engineering course that, when combined with college preparatory mathematics and science course in high school, introduces students to the scope, rigor and discipline of engineering and engineering technology prior to entering college.
