Academy of Science and Engineering

  • Young Middle Magnet School Academy of Science and Engineering is in East Tampa's College Hill neighborhood. The school mascot is Buffaloes, and our motto is "Engineering (+) Change". At Young, the curriculum focuses on inquiry-based problem solving, through a STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) approach to learning utilizing the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum. Students explore topics that connect with the world around them, while exploring potential solutions through creating apps, entrepreneurship, coding, and other creative pathways. Students investigate, design and research real-world problems. We focus on Global Planting, Global Sustainability and Global Engineering--engaging students in real-world, hands-on opportunities. The goal is to inspire students to think creatively to solve problems that exist in the world today.
