Eighth grade Project Lead the Way students are diving into the field of medical science! They are learning how essential vital signs are in diagnosing patients. Students have learned how to take a patient’s blood pressure, temperature, respiratory rate, and heart rate, as well as how to question patients to get important information about symptoms. They took bacteria samples and tested various antibiotics to determine which was the most effective. For their final project, students used this information to diagnose three patients with differing symptoms.
