Human Body Systems is the second course offered in the Project Lead the Way Biomedical Program. Project Lead the Way is a college preparatory biomedical program designed for students that wish to pursue a post-secondary education with an emphasis on careers in the health sciences. Students examine the interaction of human body systems as they explore identity, power, movement, protection and homeostasis. Students design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body, and use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex and voluntary action, and respiration. Exploring science in action, students build organs and tissues on a skeletal mannequin, work through interesting real world cases and often play the roles of biomedical professionals to solve medical mysteries.
Requested competency code:
- Lab Science
In order to be reviewed as a laboratory science, we will need a list of physical laboratory experiments completed for this course and number of hours students spend doing laboratory assignments each week.
