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!

Students in Paul Zakaria's Project Lead the Way: Intro to Engineering classes recently completed several projects, including creating a marble bridge using only a few sheets of paper, tape, and a folder. Check out the fun pictures below of how awesome & creative these students are!
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 Mr. Huffer's Project Lead the Way: Honors Principles of Engineering classes recently collaborated in teams to design & build a bridge made out of just paper. The students were challenged to design the longest bridge by using only one piece of paper and then hang their designs in the school to see if their bridge would hold up. They did an awesome job working together to design & construct their bridges.
