Royal Oak Middle School is now a Project Lead the Way School!
Royal Oak is proud to open up its STEM Academy with its Gateway to Technology class. Students will learn and apply STEM knowledge with courses in Design & Modeling and Automation & Robotics
Design & Modeling
Automation & Robotics
Through topics like robotics, flight and space, and DNA and crime scene analysis, middle school students engage their natural curiosity and imagination in creative problem solving. PLTW’s Gateway program is a strong foundation for further STEM learning in high school and beyond, challenging students to solve real-world challenges, such as cleaning oil spills and designing sustainable housing solutions. Using the same advanced software and tools as those used by the world’s leading companies, students learn how to apply math, science, technology, and engineering to their everyday lives.
Gateway is divided into eight independent, nine-week units, assuming a 45-minute class period. The Gateway program is designed to be taught in conjunction with a rigorous academic curriculum. Schools that offer the program implement both foundation units and may add any combination of the specialization units.
2015 Theme: Leadership and Legacy in History
History Day L.A. encourages students to prepare posters, exhibits, papers, web sites, performances, and documentary presentations on a historical theme. These projects will be judged by community members and history-social science professionals. Winners from all categories are invited to compete at the state level; state winners proceed to compete at the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Participation in History Day L.A. provides opportunities for students to improve academic achievement and develop important 21st century skills in preparation for college, career and citizenship – critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration, communication and creativity and innovation. As an authentic performance assessment measure, teachers can utilize History Day projects to easily assess the knowledge and skills of their students.
If you have any questions regarding this prestigious and challenging opportunity, please contact Mr. Brian Hook at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Challenge yourself to go above and beyond the rest. It's a lot of hard work but the preparation will assure your success in Honors/AP/IB courses at the high school level and beyond and might gain you a trip to Sacramento or Washington D.C.!
