How Does Northglenn HS STEM compare to other high schools?
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.
"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
"Cooperative learning is a type of structured peer interaction emphasizing positive human relationships, collaboration between peers, active learning, academic achievement, equal participation, and equal status of students in the classroom." -- Spencer Kagan
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. These lenses include: cultural, social, political, economic, historical, and scientific.
