Who is this program for?

This eight-week program is ideal for students who want to expand their learning horizons and explore the rapidly growing field of biomedicine and biotechnology.
  • elementary school students: BioMed Early taps into students’ exploratory nature, engages them in learning that feels like play, and encourages them to keep discovering – now and for years to come. Whether designing germ fighting molecules, a new organism or building digital animations, students engage in critical and creative thinking, build teamwork skills, and learn to try and try again when faced with challenges.
  • middle school students: BioMed Middle is a science class for middle schoolers that sparks the joy of discovery and illuminates the range of science paths students can look forward to in high school and beyond. Students apply knowledge and skills from a variety of science and creative disciplines. By tackling challenges like designing a therapeutic toy for a child with cerebral palsy, creating their own app, or solving a medical mystery, students are empowered to make a real-world impact.
  • high school students: BioMed HS focuses on 3 disciplines: 1) Computer Science that infuses and operates medical technology, engages students in true-to-life activities or runs problem-solving algorithms or apps; 2) Engineering that immerses students in activities like designing an artificial organ or limb, or exploring algae as a biofuel source, and 3) Biomedical Science where students step into the roles of medical investigators, surgeons, and biomedical engineers.
