For the 2021-2022 school year, BMC has added course pathways to its Curriculum Guide. These pathways were developed for students who wish to focus on a particular field of study. Some of these pathways fall under the STEM umbrella. The STEM curriculum, which is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines, including Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, is an interdisciplinary and applied approach to teaching. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real world applications.
The Aeronautics Pathway is designed to introduce our students to various aspects of engineering, aviation and aerospace. Emphasis will be placed on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education as the core concepts required to succeed in the fields of aviation and aerospace.
- Aerospace Technology 1: An Introduction
- Principles of Aeronautics/Unmanned Aircraft
- Unmanned Aircraft UAS Operations/UAS Security
- Private Pilot/Groundschool (2023-2024)
- Dual Enrollment Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
The Biomedical Science Pathway focuses on the principles from biology, chemistry, anatomy, and physics. These courses provide students with in-depth exploratory experiences and activities in the fundamental concepts of life.
- Biology (and Biology Honors)
- Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries/First Aid
- Chemistry (and Chemistry Honors)
- Forensic Science
- Genetics Honors
- Human Anatomy (and Honors)
- Physics (and Physics Honors)
- AP Biology
- AP Chemistry
- AP Physics 1 & 2
