The George Lucas Educational Foundation released five new studies highlighting how project-based learning (PBL) helps accelerate student learning—across age groups, multiple disciplines, and different socio-economic statuses. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics STEM occupations are growing twice as fast as all others.

Hear from educators how they are using SmartLab Learning to implement innovative PBL + STEM initiatives, including:

  • An overview of the Lucas Foundation Research
  • Examples of how to implement PBL + STEM programs
  • The gains—academic, social, and emotional—seen since implementing PBL + STEM
