About our STEMM Magnet

Our Goal...

The goal of the STEMM Magnet is to provide our students with a strong foundation in academics (A-G requirements) within the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, & Medicine (STEMM), to close the existing achievement gap, and to facilitate the transition of our students to post-secondary opportunities in universities, technical schools, and the 21st century work-place.

STEMM Pathways

Students enrolled in the Science Technology Engineering Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) Magnet will have a choice of two pathways -- Engineering and Biomedical Science. The engineering and biomedical sciences courses will be experiential; we want you to get involved in the projects. In fact, there are no textbooks, just challenges... and lots of computer design and analysis.

Engineering

 

  1. Introduction to Engineering Design: Students use 3D solid modeling design software to design solutions to solve proposed problems.

  2. Principles of Engineering: Students will investigate engineering and high tech careers and employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems.

  3. Computer Science Principles: Students will learn the basics of coding in a variety of programming languages including Python, HTML, and NetLogo, and learn how to make apps for Android devices.

  4. Engineering Design & Development: In capstone course students work in teams to identify a real-life problem that they would like to fix, then design and develop an original solution by applying an engineering design process. 

Biomedical Science

  1. Principles of the Biomedical Sciences: Students investigate the human body systems and various health conditions and medical treatments.

  2. Human Body Systems: Students examine the interactions of body systems, design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body.

  3. Medical Interventions: Students investigate a variety of interventions involved in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases as they follow the lives of a fictitious family.

  4. Biomedical Innovation: In this capstone class, students apply their knowledge and skills to solve problems and design innovative solutions for health challenges of the 21st century.
