How Does Northglenn HS STEM compare to other high schools?
As STEM educators, all the teacher at Northglenn HS practice these four tenets of STEM education as outlined in the Adams 12 STEM model:
In each discipline, students are presented with authentic, real-world problems on which to work. They must present their findings and solutions to community/industry experts. If any new idea can be transformed into an entrepreneurial effort, we have business partners who can work with students to make their plans into reality.
Students investigate and formulate questions as a way of understanding the content and discovering its significance. "The power of an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning is its potential to increase intellectual engagement and foster deep understanding through the development of a hands-on, minds-on and research-based disposition towards teaching and learning." --Neil Stephenson
21st Century Skills
Students practice the skills necessary to be successful in the work force. These skills include: collaboration, creativity, innovation, problem-solving, and use of technology.
When developing transdisciplinary contexts surrounding a PBL experience for students, teachers incorporate the varied lenses of different disciplines that individuals would typically explore in that authentic real-world context. Some of these lenses include: cultural, social, political, economic, historical, and scientific.
