By immersing students in activities like practicing suturing and constructing body structures from clay, PLTW Biomedical Science empowers students to build knowledge and skills in biomedical science, as well as in-demand, transportable skills like problem solving, critical and creative thinking, communication, and collaboration.
From design and data analysis to outbreaks, clinical empathy, health promotion, and more, students explore the vast range of careers in biomedical sciences. They develop not just technical skills, but also in-demand, transportable skills that they need to thrive in life and career.
Students experience real-world scenarios and cases to see medicine in action – as they diagnose and provide treatment and rehabilitation to patients at an outpatient center, keep clients safe and healthy on adventure medicine trips in remote locations, and work in a research center to design laboratory investigations to explore development and aging.
The COVID-19 Pandemic module is a supplemental, flexible, and compact (18-day) module available to all high school classes in the PLTW Biomedical Science Pathway. The high-quality, timely, and relevant content challenges students to explore numerous facets of the historic global event of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus outbreak.
Introduce your students to skills like collaboration, teamwork, and communication in the classroom so they're prepared to step into the career they want. Take a look at how PLTW alumni used their skills to succeed in their careers.
