Children in the Mehlville School District in Missouri may have the chance in two years to attend an elementary school with an alternative PBL curriculum–one that uses real-world problems to help students learn and without the restraints grade levels sometimes place on learning. The school would use technology and different instruction methods to help children learn at their own pace. They could hone their reading, math and science skills by developing solutions to problems in their community — such as hunger or water shortages — and through projects that require critical thinking. And if a first-grader is capable of fourth grade math, she would learn at a fourth-grade level.

4. Discover how three educators use PBL in science and STEM courses to encourage girls to participate in science and generate more enthusiasm for and engagement in STEM.
