Project Lead the Way - Engineering

The Project Lead the Way program is open to high school students grades 9-12.  The Introduction to Engineering Design course will expose students to design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, global and human impacts, engineering standards and technical documentation.  Students will explore topics using activity, project and problem-based learning (APPB).  Students will be challenged to continually hone their interpersonal skills, creative abilities and the understanding of the design process.

Project Lead the Way - Biomedical Science

Working with the same equipment and tools used by lab professionals, PLTW Biomedical Science students are empowered to explore and find solutions to some of today’s most pressing medical challenges.

Through scaffolded activities that connect learning to life, students step into the roles of biomedical science professionals and investigate topics including human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health.

Students work together in teams to find unique solutions, and in the process, learn in-demand, transferable skills like critical thinking and communication.

Principals of Biomedical Science

In the introductory course of the PLTW Biomedical Science program, 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, basic biology, medicine, and research processes while allowing them to design their own experiments to solve problems. 

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 build organs and tissues on a skeletal Maniken; use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex and voluntary action, and respiration; and take on the roles of biomedical professionals to solve real-world medical cases. ‚Äč
