Project-based learning

Project-based learning is an approach to teaching and learning that engages students in rich and authentic learning experiences.  It allows students to gain knowledge and skills by investigating and responding to an engaging question, problem or challenge. Students across all grades participate in project-based learning experiences throughout the year.
