If you are not familiar with Project Lead The Way, then it would be worth your time to read about it.
This article highlights a school in the Lacrosse district that has implemented PLTW. It basically takes science and engineering and applies it to real situations, giving a hands-on experience to the students.
This type of realistic learning not only gives students Meaning and Mastery, it also enhances the Symphony aptitude from Dan Pink’s A Whole New Mind.
