The Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences 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. This high school program allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Working with the same tools used by professionals in hospitals and labs, students engage
in compelling, hands-on activities and work together to find solutions to problems. Along the way
students investigate a variety of careers in biomedical sciences.
During the first year of implementation, schools are required to offer at least one of the foundation courses and ultimately implement all three foundation courses. The capstone course is optional.
Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science courses complement traditional science courses and can serve as the foundation for STEM-centered or specialized academics. The program is designed to prepare students to pursue a post-secondary education and careers in the biomedical sciences.
