The community is invited to see the apps on display and engage the students in discussion of ideas for Android Apps the students will be developing in the next unit of the programming class. The class is part of the Avondale School District partnership with the national organization, Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Avondale High School is one of only a handful of high schools offering the PLTW curriculum in Michigan. PLTW, is a course of study developed to address the disparity between the number of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) -related careers and the number of students graduating from high school and college prepared to enter into those careers. PLTW is a hands-on STEM curriculum that engages students in activities, projects, and problem-based learning and is designed to promote critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and real-world problem solving. The program also strives to increase participation in STEM studies by demographic groups that have not historically participated like female students and some minorities.
