KEYSER - Project Lead the Way is the nations's leading provider of engineering programs, and their curriculum is helping Mineral County students develop skills to succeed in the engineering field.
Representatives from the State Department of Education met with West Virginia University Academic Innovation at the Bridgeport Conference Center on Wednesday to discuss online learning.
The group included math teachers from all over the state who discussed ways to teach new math courses that are required by the state.
They're also working on an online program to allow 24 hour access to students and teachers.
"The students go and use some resources at home and the teachers assign it outside of the classroom. They can create what's called a flip classroom, where they are learning a lot of the lecture portion of the course outside of the class and then when they come in they can do a lot more of the hands on, in depth type learning," said Greg Strimel, the K-12 Coordinator for WVU Academic Innovation.
The new website will have parts of it, including Math I, ready to go by summer.
The conference will continue on Thursday with the teachers and representatives continuing to work on these new courses and systems.

Mingo Central High School’s Project Lead the Way
Pre-engineering program offered as dual credit through WVU
By Kyle Lovern
RED JACKET – Mingo Central High School announced today that it will be participating in a new dual credit program which will grant college engineering credits to qualifying Mingo County students enrolled in the Project Lead The Way Pre-engineering program. For this pilot year in the program administered by WVU-Academic Innovation High School ACCESS, students enrolled in Digital Electronics (DE) or Civil Engineering/Architecture (CEA) can earn 3 college credits for each course. These are not general elective credits, but engineering credits that can be applied to an engineering degree at WVU. To qualify, students must take two prerequisite courses: Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) and Principles of Engineering (POE). In addition to IED, POE, DE, and CEA, an Aerospace Engineering course is also offered at Mingo Central. Depending on the number of PLTW pre-engineering courses taken at Mingo Central, a student can earn up to 9 engineering credits. Other requirements also apply.
