MAST@ Homestead Biomedical Sciences Academy
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Biomedical Sciences
The PLTW Biomedical Sciences (BMS) Program is a sequence of courses, all aligned with appropriate national learning standards, which follows a proven hands-on, real-world problem-solving approach to learning. Students explore the concepts of human medicine and are introduced to topics such as physiology, genetics, microbiology and public health. Through activities, like dissecting a heart, students examine the processes, structures and interactions of the human body – often playing the role of biomedical professionals. They also explore the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, working collaboratively to investigate and design innovative solutions to the health challenges of the 21st century such as fighting cancer with nanotechnology.
The Foundation Courses are
- 1st Year Principles of Biomedical Sciences (PBS)
- 2nd Year Human Body Systems (HBS)
- 3rd Year Medical Intervention (MI)
- 4th Year Biomedical Innovation (BI)
