Course description

Biological engineering is a science elective course in which students will have the opportunity to complete a series of hands on scientific explorations in a cutting edge field in science. This STEM (Science; Technology; Engineering & Math) course gives students the opportunity to analyze biological systems; apply engineering principles to these biological processes and use their skills to build better solutions to a large variety of real world problems. Example investigations include the use ofmicroorganisms to produce fuels; genetically engineering organisms; using increasing computer power to analyze biologicaldata in genetics and medicine and “bio-hacking” humans and other organisms. Upon completion of this course students willhave a deeper understanding of biological engineering concepts as well as an advanced understanding of real world problem solving through the use of the engineering design process.
