East Anchorage High is proud to offer the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) pathways for Biomedical and Computer Science, beginning in Fall 2019.
"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. Students take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take."
- Ms. Talia Wiacek teaches Principles of Biomedical Science (year 1 class), and Ms. Nikki O'Hara teaches Human Body Systems (year 2 class). Contact Ms. Wiacek, Ms. O'Hara, or your counselor for more information!
"At a time when computer science affects how we work and live, PLTW Computer Science empowers students in grades 9-12 to become creators, instead of merely consumers, of the technology all around them.
The program’s interdisciplinary courses engage students in compelling, real-world challenges. As students work together to design solutions, they learn computational thinking – not just how to code – and become better thinkers and communicators. Students take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take."
