Project Lead the WayThe Biomedical Science and Biology Pathway in the AISD STEM Academy utilizes the nationally recognized Project Lead the Way curriculum. “The rigorous and relevant PLTW Biomedical Science sequence allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Students engage in activities like investigating the death of a fictional person to learn content in the context of real-world cases. They examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future.”
