Students engage with Projects that connect the classroom to the real world. When students work in teams to apply what they're learning to Projects that mimic and solve real-world problems, they develop strong collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills.
Teachers facilitate these Projects while providing students with ongoing coaching and feedback.
In this video, students and teachers discuss a Project called "Build Your Own Solar Cell". They talk about how it is relevant to the real-world, how it solves a problem, and how students practice specific skills in this Project.
