    4th Block - Project Lead The Way Biomedical Science

     

     

    Project Lead The Way 

    Principles of Biomedical Science (PBS) 

    PBS provides an introduction to biomedical science through exciting hands-on projects and problems. Students investigate concepts of biology and medicine as they explore heath conditions including heart disease, diabetes, sickle-cell disease, hypercholesterolemia, and infectious diseases. Students determine the factors that led to the death of a fictional woman as they sequentially piece together evidence found in her medical history and her autopsy report. Students investigate lifestyle choices and medical treatments that might have prolonged the woman's life and demonstrate how the development of disease is related to changes in human body systems.

     

    Project Lead The Way 

    PLTW Human Body Systems (HBS)

    In this course students examine the human body systems, design experiments and use data acquisition software to monitor body functions and often play the role of the biomedical professional. English language arts and science are reinforced in this course. Work-based learning strategies appropriate for this course include service learning and job shadowing. Apprenticeship and cooperative education are not available for this course. Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) competitive events, community service, and leadership activities provide the opportunity to apply essential standards and workplace readiness skills through authentic experiences.
