Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for students and teachers across the nation. Through funding by Polaris Career Center, PLTW’s curriculum is provided to both high school and middle school students in the Fairview Park City Schools.
On Tuesday, April 30, students who completed four years of the Biomedical Science or Engineering Programs were recognized by Mrs. Cheri Gorey presented on behalf of Biomedical Sciences, and Mrs. Heather Delis on behalf of Engineering.
“Mrs. Delis and I are honored to recognize these outstanding seniors this afternoon,” said Cheri Gorey, biomedical sciences instructor. “Their dedication to preparing for a career in science or engineering is commendable and they are an example for their peers. Student projects in these programs enabled them to demonstrate mastery of each component of the Fairview advantage: including collaboration, creation, innovation, investigation, and solving problems. In the process they also achieved the mission set forth by Polaris Career Center and are prepared for career success. With this solid foundation, we look forward to all that you will accomplish.”
The Biomedical Science sequence includes: Principles of Biomedical Science, Human Body Systems, Medical Interventions, and Biomedical Innovations.
The Engineering program sequence includes: Introduction to Engineering Design, Digital Electronics, Principles of Engineering, and AP Computer Science.
