Eastern High School

Grades 7-12    IB Biotechnical Academy


Mission and Vision

We believe our kids are the solution finders of the future. The Biotechnical program within Eastern High School’s IB focus, will provide a unique and equitable learning experience for a diverse group of students through an intensive STEM curriculum to set a path for college and career readiness in biotechnical fields that impact people’s lives both locally and globally.

What is Project Lead The Way?

Through our pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science, students not only learn technical skills, but also learn to solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate, and collaborate.

What is Project Based Learning?

What is PBL? PBL projects lead to deeper understanding and greater retention of content knowledge. Students are better able to apply what they know to new situations.Students actively engage with PBL projects which provide real-world relevance for learning. Students can solve problems that are important to them and their communities.

What is an IB learner?

These traits go beyond intellectual development and academic success. They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.

Academic Program 2018-2019 School Year

7th Grade-PLTW Units + Additional Project Based Learning Units

Design & Modeling
- 9 week unit

Students discover the design process and develop an understanding of the influence of creativity and innovation in their lives. They are then challenged and empowered to use and apply what they’ve learned throughout the unit to design a therapeutic toy for a child who has cerebral palsy

Medical Detectives
- 9 week unit

Students play the role of real-life medical detectives as they collect and analyze medical data to diagnose disease. They solve medical mysteries through hands-on projects and labs, measure and interpret vital signs, dissect a sheep brain, investigate disease outbreaks, and explore how a breakdown within the human body can lead to dysfunction.

8th Grade-PLTW Units + Additional Project Based Learning Units

Science of Technology
- 9 week unit

Students apply the concepts of physics, chemistry, and nanotechnology to STEM activities and projects, including making ice cream, cleaning up an oil spill, and discovering the properties of nano-materials.

Automation & Robotics
- 9 week unit

Students trace the history, development, and influence of automation and robotics as they learn about mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. Students use the VEX Robotics® platform to design, build, and program real-world objects such as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms.
