9th grade students will have a blended biology course introducing concepts through project-based learning in agriculture and biomedical studies.

Human Body Systems
Grades: 10-12 
Prerequisite: Biology-Medical
Credit: 1
Course Length: 2 semesters
Science credit equivalency

This course allows students to examine the interactions of body systems as they explore identity, communication, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis. Students design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body, and use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex and voluntary action, and respiration. Exploring science in action, students build organs and tissues on a skeletal mannequin, work through interesting real world cases and often play the role of biomedical professionals to solve medical mysteries.
