Northside High School/Project Lead the Way

Biomedical Engineering

Northside’s PLTW Biomedical Science sequence allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. They examine the structures and interactions of human body systems and explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, all while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to the most pressing health challenges of today and the future. This is done through student-centered activities including investigating a fictitious crime, completing college-level laboratories, and analyzing real-life, relevant cases.


“The Northside Magnet Program was the best part of my

experience at Northside High School. Being in the magnet program taught

me not only fundamental engineering skills that I can apply to my future

aspirations, but also integral life skills such as organization or

cooperativeness. The teachers are knowledgeable and always willing to

help you learn more while still maintaining the calm atmosphere that is

needed to increase learning.”

~ Kevin Woodrum, Class of 2016

“Attending Northside’s Engineering Magnet has greatly enriched my high school experience. It has taught me all aspects and branches in the career. Also, it’s academic rigor has definitely imprinted a sense of responsibility onto me. Most importantly, though, the magnet has supplemented my love for engineering and reassured me that it’s the career I want to pursue.”

~ Jorge Vargas, Class of 2016
