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.


  1. Exploring Computer Science:  Students will learn the fundamentals of computer science such as algorithm development, problem solving, and programming to help students use digital tools or languages to solve real-world problems
  2. Introduction to Engineering Design: Students use 3D solid modeling design software to design solutions to solve real-world problems.
  3. AP Computer Science Principles (AP-CSP): Students will learn college-level data simulation and programming skills & languages, building upon the foundations of block coding and advancing to text- and object-based programming languages.
  4. Engineering Design and Development (EDD): 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.
