Recognition for Biomedical Scholars

My students need to be recognized for their hard work and dedication - this will be done through a lapel pin given to seniors who have completed our program which they can wear at graduation.

My Students

I teach biomedical science in program called Project Lead The Way -- an intense, innovative, four-year curriculum that engages students in STEM education. 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.

My students are the future of healthcare.

These students gain experience working with lab equipment that they would not see until college or the workforce. In our classes, students solve real problems, think critically, and learn the skills that they need to succeed in a fast-paced world.

My Project

While many businesses and organizations have budgets for items/activities that are relevant to the happiness and retention of their participants, schools seem to skip that altogether. Unfortunately, purchasing these items from our school budget is seen as unnecessary. I would contend that finding ways to recognize our students for the effort they put into a program does wonders for the climate of the program and retention rates of its participants, and is indeed necessary.

The PLTW Biomedical Sciences program at our school is rigorous, relevant, and rewarding.

The students who have chosen to persevere and complete all four courses in this career sequence deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments. Those students who complete the capstone course build on the knowledge and skills gained from previous courses to design innovative solutions for the most pressing health challenges of the 21st century. Students address topics ranging from public health and biomedical engineering to clinical medicine and physiology. They also complete an independent research project with a mentor or advisor from a university, medical facility, or research institution. These students are deserving of recognition.

We would like to award seniors who complete the program with a caduceus lapel pin to signify their college and career-ready accomplishments and wear on their graduation robe. Funding this project would not only provide this much needed recognition to our 2018 graduating class, but would start a lasting tradition.
