Project-based learning is an approach to teaching and learning where students actively explore real-world problems and challenges through projects.
Project-based learning engages students in authentic, meaningful learning experiences.
Research shows that project-based learning (PBL) has a profound impact in deepening educational experiences for students. PBL allows students to:
- Develop and explore questions and problems
- Conduct their own research
- Make connections with experts in a specific subject matter
- Create final products to share with the class or greater community
In Systems Thinking, students investigate systems, and examine how these systems connect to other systems in our world.
Design Thinking is a creative problem-solving approach that involves 5 steps: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test.
In a Genius Hour Project, students research and create a project of their choice over the course of several weeks.
