    Welcome to STEM Medical Detectives class!  It is my goal to create a safe and fun environment in which all students are able to succeed.  In order to do this, it is important to keep all lines of communication between home and school open.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year.

    Course Description

    Project Lead the Way: Medical Detectives

     

    PLTW is a program that is designed to expose students to STEM careers and opportunities. In this course students play the role of real-life medical detectives as they collect and analyze medical data to diagnose disease. They solve medical mysteries through hands-on projects and labs, measure and interpret vital signs, examine nervous system structure and function, investigate disease outbreaks, and explore how a breakdown within the human body can lead to dysfunction.  This is a lab/project based class with a $5.00 fee attached

    Genetics Disorders

    Genetics Disorder Symposium

    Example Epidermolysis - this example uses no words, just all visuals.  The presenter did NOT rely on the power point to get information accross, the information was all verbal and delivered utilizing the notecards.  YOU WILL BE GRADED ON YOUR USE OF NOTECARDS AND EYE CONTACT.

    I would recommend using bullets on your powerpoint with minimial wording, elaborate utilizing your notecards and your presentation is your and the audience's guide
