Rose Love's Project Lead the Way: Biomedical Innovations & Sciences classes have had the opportunity to hear from a special guest speaker the last two days. Marti Pollnow, a Cardiovascular Technologist in the Cardiac Cath Lab at Goshen Hospital, shared her passion for her career with these students. Marti not only showed them what a day in the Cath Lab looks like for her but also taught them about the wide variety of cases she sees on a weekly basis. The students were able to see and practice with some of the equipment she uses on her patients on a daily basis, as well. Marti then tested the students' knowledge of the cardiovascular system as they've been learning about heart disease and structures recently. Special thanks to Mrs. Pollnow for taking time out of her busy schedule to invest in the lives of our students!

Earlier this week, the Honors Biomedical students had the opportunity to showcase their Human Physiology scientific posters to area medical professionals at the WCS Central Office building. We are so proud of these amazing seniors!!
Students in Ms. Love's Project Lead the Way- Honors Biomedical Innovations class gave their final sales pitch presentations to the community in a "Shark Tank"-like setting last night at WCHS. These students have been in this program for their entire 4-year high school careers and received a medal that will be worn on their robe during the graduation ceremony in June. Congratulations & great job students!
