Mrs. Megan Cox
After working in the healthcare setting with children for several years, I decided to go into education. I enjoy steering students in the right direction to reach their goals in life and incorporating technology to do it. I have worked with children with disabilities in the school setting and as an Instructional Technology Faciliator Specialist. I have also enjoyed coaching cheerleading, facilitating professional development, and serving as test coordinator over the years.
What is PLTW?
PLTW aka Project Lead the Way program is designed to provide middle and high school students essential and enduring 21st century skills. PLTW is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program that uses the arts, engineering, languages, technologies, AND sciences to understand, communicate, and design.
This course focuses on the nature and core concepts of technology, engineering, and design. Through engaging activities and hands-on project-based activities, students are introduced to the following concepts: elements and principles of design, basic engineering, problem solving, and teaming. Students apply research and development skills and produce physical and virtual models. Activities are structured to integrate physical and social sciences, mathematics, English, language arts, and art.
All assignments are posted in Google Classroom under their specific class depending on the grade level. Parents are able to join notifications for assignments by sharing their email with Mrs. Cox. Please email MeganCox@johnston.k12.nc.us if you are not connected to your child's classroom.
