The Academy of Information Technology and Engineering (AITE) is a college preparatory, inter-district public magnet high school based in Stamford, Connecticut. AITE serves the Connecticut communities of Stamford, Darien, Greenwich, Norwalk, New Canaan, Redding, Ridgefield, Wilton and Weston.
"AITE has been a Project Lead the Way school for 12 years and, when it had the chance to start a biomedical program four years ago, they jumped at it. The organization is a provider of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs in U.S. middle and high schools" (1).
The program consist of four-courses of PLTW Biomedical Science that allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. Students engage in activities like investigating the death of a fictional person to learn content in the context of real-world cases. They examine the structures and interactions of human body system. Students also explore the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease while working collaboratively to understand and design solutions to health challenges and concerns (2).
