Beaverton Schools


At BASE, CTE or Career Technical Education is taught through a program called Project Lead the Way. We have three high school pathways: Biomedical, Engineering and Computer Science.  We also have PLTW in middle school. 

Automation & Robotics

Students trace the history, development, and influence of automation and robotics as they learn about mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. Students use the VEX Robotics® platform to design, build, and program real-world objects such as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms.

Engineering Essentials

A NEW experience in PLTW Engineering, Engineering Essentials offers a multidisciplinary approach to teaching and learning foundational concepts of engineering practice, providing students opportunities to explore the breadth of engineering career opportunities and experiences and solve engaging and challenging real-world problems. By inspiring and empowering students with an understanding of engineering and career opportunities, Engineering Essentials broadens participation in engineering education and the engineering profession.
