Book Chapter
This chapter discusses the curriculum modules designed by the Vanderbilt-Northwestern-Texas-Harvard/Massachusetts Institute of Technology Engineering Research Center in Bioengineering Educational Technologies that incorporate an inquiry-cycle style of instruction into high school level biomedical engineering classes. The Biomedical Engineering Challenge-Based Curriculum has been implemented and field-tested at schools throughout Nashville, Tennessee. This program features science curricula that meet numerous More Emphasis standards through the use of challenge-based Legacy Cycle materials. Challenges were based on applications of biomedical engineering topics that allowed students to learn important concepts in physics, biology, and anatomy and physiology.
