    The Parkway West Technology and Engineering program supports students through curriculum, instruction, and experiences that develop STEM literacy. The overarching goal of the program is to empower students to apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics concepts and skills to navigate complex problems and to innovate with others to solve them.

    Students will participate in project- and problem-based learning as well as traditional instructional strategies geared toward different learning styles. Students will apply their knowledge through hands-on activities in the digital lab and, at times, in the shop. Technical equipment, innovative software, hand tools, and machine tools will be used simply as a tool to get the job done.
