East Lake High School Academy of Biomedical Sciences

  • Students celebrating earning their white coats wearing red stols

    The mission of ELHS Biomedical Science Academy is to introduce students to biotechnical skills and equipment, and prepare students for careers in healthcare and related research.

  • Engaging Curriculum with hands-on lab experience!

    Whether discovering new cancer treatments or teaching healthy lifestyle choices to their communities, today’s biomedical science professionals are tackling big challenges to make the world a better place.
    PLTW Biomedical Science students are taking on these same real-world challenges – and they’re doing it before they even graduate from high school. Working with the same tools used by
    professionals in hospitals and labs, students engage in compelling, hands-on activities and work together to find solutions to problems. From completed courses students take with them in-demand knowledge and skills they will use throughout high school and the rest of their lives, in any career path they choose.
