Partnership extends Pickerington STEM course to Canal Winchester students
Wednesday, August 07, 2019
A new partnership for the 2019-20 school year will enable four Canal Winchester High School seniors to get biomedical science instruction alongside Pickerington students at the OhioHealth Pickerington Medical Campus, 1010 Refugee Road.
This school year will mark the fifth that students from Pickerington High School Central and Pickerington High School North will take STEM-based classes -- those rooted in science, technology, engineering and mathematics -- at the medical campus.
The biomedical science course for seniors is taught by Andy Harris, the STEM biomedical science coordinator for Pickerington Schools. The course covers biochemical and physiological functions, anatomy, epidemiology and pharmacology in a setting that allows students to interact with, observe and hear from doctors and other health-care professionals working at the campus.
