STEM/PBL Institute

STEM/PBL Institute


Attendees will learn how to facilitate student learning through authentic, real-world problem-solving that aligns with standardized school requirements. Participants will develop a strong understanding of the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) model, and how to partner with industry leaders in their community so they can bring authentic learning experiences to their schools. Through the PBL model, participants will build positive entrepreneurial identities and foster a growth mindset in their students, teaching them the importance of risk-taking, resilience, collaboration, and stewardship.

After experiencing the PBL process, participants explore collaborative structures, planning structures, and the logistics around PBL implementation. They consider the importance of cultivating a growth mindset in students and normalizing failure. Once participants are outfitted with the tools and knowledge needed for PBL planning, participants draft their own PBL with the support of facilitator expertise and collegial input.
