BioMedical Sciences engages students in hands-on activities, projects, labs, and problems that inspire them to reimagine their future like never before. Our students in Project Lead the Way's BioMedical Sciences Program are learning some of the advanced basics that will transform them from curious and engaged students into knowledgeable and creative health care problem solvers for the 21st Century!
Whether discovering new cancer treatments or teaching healthy lifestyle choices to their communities, today’s biomedical science professionals are tackling big challenges to make the world a better place.
PLTW Biomedical Science students are taking on these same real-world challenges – and they’re doing it before they even graduate from high school. 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. Students take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.
Building models is a great way to synthesize students' own learning and allow them to see and evaluate their own progress. LEGOs, for years, have been children's first introduction to the building that can take shape when their creativity is allowed to flow over. In our BioMedical Sciences program, in addition to the everyday arts, crafts, and clay supplies, we use LEGOs to let their learning and creativity soar to new heights. It is our goal to help these future healthcare professionals bring about the needed research and ideas to allow all persons to enjoy longer, happier, and healthier lives.
Using the storage bins from Deflecto, the LEGOs can be sorted and used to develop models to demonstrate students’ understanding of anatomical structures, physiological processes, and even give form to their ideas about the future of medicine.
