LEAD

Learning, Engineering, and Design

ELIZABETH SETON HIGH

SCHOOL’S LEAD PROGRAM

Elizabeth Seton High School is leading the

way in science, technology, engineering, and

math instruction by offering an integrated

program entitled, LEAD - Learning

Engineering and Design. This program has

adopted the educational model, Engineering

by Design, developed by The International

Technology and Engineering Educators

Association’s STEM Center for Teaching

and Learning. This is a standards-based

national model built upon Standards for

Technological Literacy (ITEEA), Principles

and Standards for School Mathematics

(NCTM), and Project 2061, Benchmarks for

Science Literacy (AAAS). LEAD integrates

these standards of learning for science,

math, and technology with the principles of

engineering and design. It allows students

to align knowledge, skills, capabilities, and

critical thinking skills into problem solving

learning. Students are taught a defined

sequence of skills while gaining an

understanding of the principles and systems

of engineering and design. They engage in

hands-on exploration, which includes

building, creating, designing, and testing so

that they can apply the skills they have

learned to solve problems in the world

around them. This program includes the

development of a four-year curriculum in

STEM instruction that increases their

understanding of engineering design and

application while preparing them for college

level courses in engineering and technology.

WHY LEAD?

This curriculum has been designed to lead students to

increased achievement in science, technology, engineering,

and math in a problem-solving environment. This education

engages students in learning and experimenting that

improves life, drives invention and innovation, develops

critical thinking skills, and changes the way people live and

interact. LEAD also changes the definition of technological

literacy to include strategies that allow students to build their

own understanding of engineering design, the process that

transforms ideas into manufactured products that impact

the environment, society, and our global developments.

LEAD enables students to learn principles and designs that

allow them to assess, evaluate and discern technological

values and ethics as technology affects our behavior, our

lifestyle, and our global perspective. This program also

teaches students to work together in teams in an

environment where constructive feedback, project

management, and participatory learning are valued. It

promotes students’ abilities to network with others and

deepens their appreciation for diverse thinking in problemsolving

situations.

Elizabeth Seton High School’s LEAD program prepares

students for a wide variety of career paths. Designing and

applying technology is vital for those who enter the work

force today as technology plays an ever-increasing role both

in our economic vitality and our environmental survival.

Students apply and transfer this knowledge to solve

common, everyday problems and gradually progress to

more global issues. Students use their ingenuity with tools,

building materials, robotics, electronics, etc. in laboratory

classrooms to create, design, and build inventions, models,

and products for the world in which they live.
