PLTW Biomedical Science Curriculum
The Biomedical Academy is proud incorporate Project Lead The Way Biomedical Science curriculum as its foundation of academic rigor
9th Grade Principles of Biomedical Sciences: Students explore concepts of biology and medicine to determine factors that led to the death of a fictional person. While investigating the case, students examine autopsy reports, investigate medical history, and explore medical treatments that might have prolonged the person’s life. The activities and projects introduce students to human physiology, biology, medicine, and research processes
10th Grade Human Body Systems: Students examine the interactions of human body systems as they explore identity, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis in the body. Exploring science in action, students take on the roles of biomedical professionals to solve real-world medical cases.
11th Grade Medical Interventions: Students follow the life of a fictitious family as they investigate how to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. Students explore how to detect and fight infection; screen and evaluate the code in human DNA; evaluate cancer treatment options; and prevail when the organs of the body begin to fail. Through real-world cases, students are exposed to a range of interventions related to immunology, surgery, genetics, pharmacology, medical devices, and diagnostics.
12th Grade Biomedical Innovation: In this capstone course, students design innovative solutions for the health challenges of the 21st century. Students address topics ranging from public health to biomedical engineering. They have the opportunity to work on an independent project with a mentor.
