    Biomedical Technology I is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) course.  It is the introductory course for both the health sciences and biotechnology STEM  "majors" at Atkins.  Students will explore topics in biomedical research, infectious diseases, cell biology and cancer, and pathology and forensics, nanotechnology, stem cells, cloning, regenerative medicine, vaccines and related careers with a variety of activities.  See the syllabus.  Students will use Haiku http://wsfcs.haikulearning.com/to share and receive information and submit assignments for this course.  Parents will receive information about how to access Haiku as well. 
     
    In addition to the course content, students will also practice 21st Century Skills.
     
     I am looking forward to getting to know all students as we learn about Biomedical Technology together.
