Advance Biomedical Applications

Students design innovative solutions for the health challenges of the 21st century! 

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.   

Throughout the course, students are expected to present their work to an audience of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) professionals. 

Project Lead The Way – Capstone Program (Years 3 and 4).  An internship of up to 90 hours is required.
