Project-based learning is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge.
- Physics students assume the role of aerospace engineers to explore the real-world problem of how to land a rover on Mars.
- Brief daily meetings give students working in groups the structure to hold each other accountable on long-term projects.
- The Claim, Evidence, Reasoning framework is a scaffolded way to teach the scientific method.
- Learning collaboratively through projects yields results for middle school students.
