PLTW – Human Body Systems – 9271

This course is the second in the nationally recognized Project Lead the Way series, designed to investigate biomedical sciences through exciting hands-on projects and problems which encourage the students to develop innovative, collaborative, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students will examine the interactions of human body systems as they explore identity, power, movement, protection and homeostasis. Students will design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body and use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflexes, voluntary action and respiration. Exploring science in action, students build organs and tissues on a mannequin, work through interesting real-world cases and often play the role of biomedical professionals to solve medical mysteries. Earn one science or practical art credit.
