T.E.A.M. Curriculum Pathways

School of Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Advanced Manufacturing  (T.E.A. M.)  at Olympic High School courses complement traditional mathematics and science courses and serve as the foundation for STEM education. The program is designed to prepare students to pursue a post-secondary education and careers in STEM-related fields. NOTE: Each CTE course as a sample video, so click on each subject for a better understanding that will take you to the YouTube.

Introduction to Engineering Design (IED)

Designed for 9th or 10th grade students, the major focus of IED is the design process and its application. Through hands-on projects, students apply engineering standards and document their work. Students use industry standard 3D modeling software to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems, document their work using an engineer’s notebook, and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community.

   Principles of Engineering (POE)

Designed for 10th or 11th grade students, this survey course exposes students to major concepts they’ll encounter in a post-secondary engineering course of study. Topics include mechanisms, energy, statics, materials, and kinematics. They develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges, document their work and communicate solutions.
