We are all aware that Project-based Learning has enjoyed global success.
The ML-PBL Curriculum engages elementary students in making sense of the world. Science educators and researchers from MSU's CREATE for STEM Institute and the University of Michigan partnered to develop, test and revise 3-dimensional, phenomena-based curricula, teacher professional learning materials, and assessments.
The ML-PBL curriculum was the focus of a multi-year research program. From informative case studies of individual teachers and classrooms to a large-scale randomized control trial for efficacy, the ML-PBL curriclum is one of the best-researched elementary school programs in the country.
