The WACTC Biomedical Science students are taking on these same real-world challenges as todays scientists – and they’re doing it before they even graduate from high school. Working with the same tools used by professionals in hospitals and labs, students engage in compelling, hands-on activities and work together to find solutions to problems. Students take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.

Qualified graduates will receive college credits.
