Problem-based learning is introducing new ways to teach STEM-based subjects to students.
“Problem-based learning emphasizes the hands-on approach when it comes to projects and assignments. Students learn by drawing on their own life experiences as well as working together with their peers to find a solution. Much like a scientists performing experiments in their labs, students are able to create a valuable learning experience through mistakes and successes. If students are exposed to problem-based learning from an early age, they’ll feel more inclined (and prepared) to pursue vital STEM careers during and after college.”
