You may have the opportunity of being a part of the Science & Engineering Learning Community at GBS! This is an integrated program of study open to Glenbrook South students who have been placed in honors science, who have received a placement of Geometry Honors, Algebra 2, or Algebra 2 Honors, and who have identified themselves as desiring to take integrated science and engineering coursework in high school given their interest in engineering and related STEM careers.
||AP Physics, AP Chemistry, and/or AP Env. Science
||Intro to Engineering Design Honors
||Principles of Engineers Honors
||Digital Electronics Honors
||Engineering Design & Development Honors
||Geometry Honors or Higher
||Algebra 2 Honors or Higher
||Pre-Calc or Higher
||Calculus and/or Computer Science
The sequence includes four years of science, four years of math, and four years of Project Lead the Way (PLTW) engineering culminating in the capstone Engineering Design & Development course in which students apply all prerequisite coursework to identify, design, and create a solution to a real-world engineering problem. Science and engineering courses taken in grades 9-11 have been designed to uniquely integrate projects and learning experiences between the science and engineering courses. During grade 12, a student will have the opportunity to take one of four AP science courses–AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP Physics 1 (algebra-based), AP Physics C (calculus-based)–along with the PLTW Engineering Design & Development Honors course.
