Partnerships are Mutually Beneficial

Partnership with Adams 12 STEM is a mutually beneficial relationship between your industry and our educational program. Partnerships are about time and talent, not about financial investment. There are many ways that you can be part of a dynamic educational model​.

How Partnerships Work

The Northglenn High School STEM staff and students have utilized partnerships since 2012 to solve real world problems.  Read through some of the highlights below to see how Northglenn High School STEM students have partnered with local organizations to solve problems.  We call these PBL's (Problem Based Learning).  Students are given an authentic problem and must come up with a solution using collaboration, 21st century skills and transdisciplinary lenses.  The best problems come from our partnerships.
