Biomedical Academy

The Biomedical Academy challenges students to take on the same problems as biomedical science professionals, such as teaching healthy lifestyle choices, designing prosthesis, and using DNA gel electrophoresis to solve a crime. Working with the same tools used by professionals in hospitals and labs, students engage in compelling, hands-on activities and work together to find solutions to problems. In this small learning community, students have opportunities for leadership and enhancing soft skills in an academically rigorous environment.
