  • Course Description: Digital Electronics is one of the two 3rd year courses offered in the Engineering Pathway.  It is offered in odd school years (ex. 22-23 school year) and can be taken during Junior or Senior year.  Digital Electronics is a year-long, honors course in the Project Lead the Way Curriculum. This course in applied logic encompasses the application and construction of electronic circuits and devices. Students explore the 1’s and 0’s behind basic computer logic by using the circuit design process to create truth tables, implement basic logic gates, and use industry standard simulation software to design, test, and build digital circuitry.
