Tesla Engineering Charter School featured in IOMTesla Engineering Charter School launched in the 2002-03 school year under the framework of FIRST Robotics and PLTW - Project Lead The Way, a nonprofit organization that develops STEM curriculum within schools. With German and teacher Sean Schuff trained in PLTW, AASD was one of the first in the state to incorporate the program.

Last year’s graduating Tesla class of 29 students received more than $300,000 in scholarships and went on to top-tier universities. Tesla has about 130 students, and 21 will graduate next month.

German and Schuff tell their students that robotics and engineering are about making the world a better place, and that extends beyond mechanical solutions to problems — it’s about the process and all that goes into it, German says.

The program benefits any student, not just those planning to pursue an engineering degree. It builds an important problem-solving skill set and provides technical knowledge and language that proves important in communication and other areas of business and industry.
