In the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Medical Interventions class high school students follow the life of a fictitious family as they investigate how to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. In this challenge, students apply what they’ve learned about cancer and treatment development to design a clinical trial for a new cancer treatment.

Spend a few hours reviewing projects online and sharing written feedback with students, all through our online portal.
