Participants came to hear, learn and see what PBLs are and how they are transforming K-12 science education learning and teaching!  This is your opportunity to network with educators from across the state.  Whether you are at the university level, in the classroom teaching, working in administration or are an informal educator, we are all working with PBLs to engage and motivate students in STEM education.

Our Keynote speaker, Dr. Brian Mandell from the Smithsonian, shared PBL curriculum developed in collaboration with the Smithsonian and Carolina Biological Supply, the evolving importance of PBL for successful student engagement, and research underway to evaluate the PBL effectiveness in student outcomes.

Breakout sessions were led by the Science House, the CERTL Center at Wake Forest, and Smithsonian/Carolina Biological Collaborators.
