STEM for all students

In every classroom.  Adams 12 STEM continuum has adopted an inquiry educational approach that uses problem-based learning (PBLs).  In each discipline, students address authentic problems using 21st century skills looking through a variety of lenses.  These lenses may include:  social, political, environmental, economic, cultural and historical.  Students present their recommendations and solutions to an authentic panel comprised of industry and community partners.  Regardless of the pathway, all Northglenn High School students experience these rich and rigorous learning opportunities matched to national, state and district standards.
