PBL - Project and Problem Based Learning


The curriculum at the STEM school is rooted in a project/problem based learning philosophy (referred to as PBL). PBL is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges, simultaneously developing cross-curriculum skills while working in small collaborative groups. Because PBL is filled with active and engaged learning, it inspires students to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they are studying. Strong related arts programs and advanced technological resources will foster creativity and innovative critical thinking skills as they address the project challenges presented in school curriculum.

PBL stands for two types of learning that are used at the STEM school:
1. Project Based Learning - Create a product that meaningful addresses an essential question.
2. Problem Based Learning - Apply knowledge and skills to develop a viable solution to a defined problem.

PBL units take place throughout the year at STEM School Chattanooga. The PBL units and the purpose of the units are distinguishable by grade level.
