Biomedical Science Program

Scecina’s Biomedical Science (BMS) Program is a partnership with Project Lead The Way. The BMS curriculum is a sequence of courses, all aligned with appropriate national learning standards, which follows a hands-on, real-world problem-solving approach to learning. High school 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. 

Throughout the BMS Program, students acquire strong teamwork and communication practices, and develop organizational, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills. The program is designed to prepare students for education beyond high school and careers in health sciences or biomedical sciences. 

Project Lead The Way  is a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for PreK-12 students and teachers across the U.S. PLTW empowers students to develop and apply in-demand, transportable skills by exploring real-world challenges.
