A key element of our campus mission is to get students excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
. This ambition initiated with the work done by the original design team and has been carried out by our committed staff. To this end, the Biomedical Science
programs are recognized as signature programs of our campus, with nearly 50% of our student enrolled in either program, and I am happy to announce that we have two new team members excited about teaching the upcoming courses:
, who is currently teaching Biology, will teach the Medical Interventions
class beginning next academic year. As noted on the PLTW webpage, “students in this class follow the life of a fictitious family as they investigate how to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. Students explore how to detect and fight infection; screen and evaluate the code in human DNA; evaluate cancer treatment options; and prevail when the organs of the body begin to fail. Through real-world cases, students are exposed to a range of interventions related to immunology, surgery, genetics, pharmacology, medical devices, and diagnostics.” The Medical Interventions class the the third of 4 classes in the Biomedical Science elective pathway.
, who has been teaching Physcis, will teach the Principles of Engineering
class beginning next school year. As noted on the PLTW webpage, “students in this class, students explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of structures and materials, and automation. Students develop skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process documentation, collaboration, and presentation.”
Both Mrs. Bachman and Mr. Fieberg will continue to teach classes in the science department.
