Welcome To Mrs. Maynard's PLTW Class and TSA Club

Hello parents and students! Welcome to PLTW. My name is Mrs. Maynard. This is my 14th year teaching with 6 of those teaching Project Lead the Way at BCMS. I am also the advisor for our BCMS TSA Chapter. Please see note on my website about more information on TSA and how to join! I have 3 little boys. One attends Bogue Sound Elementary and two are here with me at BCMS this year in 6th grade and 7th grade! We moved to the Crystal Coast 6 years ago to enjoy the beautiful beach but mainly for Carteret County Schools. I am honored to be able to work at such an outstanding school system. You will enjoy BCMS and PLTW! PLTW is an engineering curriculum that engages students in a team/problem solving environment.

6th grade students discover the design process and develop an understanding of the influence of creativity and innovation in their lives. They are then challenged and empowered to use and apply what they’ve learned throughout the unit to design a therapeutic toy for a child who has cerebral palsy.

7th grade students become Medical Detectives where students play the role of real-life medical detectives as they collect and analyze medical data to diagnose disease. They solve medical mysteries through hands-on projects and labs, measure and interpret vital signs, dissect a sheep brain, investigate disease outbreaks, and explore how a breakdown within the human body can lead to dysfunction.

8th grade students trace the history, development, and influence of automation and robotics as they learn about mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. Students use the VEX Robotics® platform to design, build, and program real-world objects such as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms.


Please don't hesitate to reach out anytime! I am looking forward to an excellent school year!
