Central Nine drops engineering course, adds others

Fewer local high school students can take courses that would prepare them for a career in engineering after a local center dropped a once-popular program.

Central Nine Career Center added a pre-engineering program several years ago to give students taking advanced science and math courses the chance to learn problem-solving applications and participate in hands-on projects similar to what they would see in a college-level engineering program.

The program was offered by Project Lead the Way, which tries to prepare students for careers in science, technology, engineering and math and which has courses at 5,000 schools across the country.
