Incorporating STEM into Project Based Learning


Title image

Are you looking for ways to incorporate STEM into Project Based Learning?

 STEM concepts fit easily into this framework of Project-Based Learning.
 Project-Based Learning focuses on inquiry and investigation which is necessary for STEM.  Students don't look for right or wrong answers in project based learning. They solve problems and face real world challenges. PBL fosters students' creativity and innovation to solve problems. 
 Reflection is an important component of Project Based Learning and STEM. 
“We don’t learn from experience, we learn from reflecting on experience.“ - John Dewey

Used this for an enrichment class. My students enjoyed building their own playable hole. We used the example holes to practice measuring angles, too.

This is an incredible resource - I love the visual aids to help students - I love the creativity and open-mindedness of this resource. Thank you so much!!!!!
