The PBL Projects of the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) are a series of STEM problem based learning curriculum and professional development projects funded by the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program (NSF ATE). Each of the PBL Projects has developed a collection of authentic real world multimedia case studies called Challenges with industry partners in the areas of optics and photonics, sustainable technologies, and advanced manufacturing (in process).

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 PBL Resource Center Director Kelli Vallieres and senior consultant Barry Sheckley held the last of this year’s problem-based learning workshops for Hartford Public School's (HPS)  STEM educators. A group of vanguard teachers have been developing overarching problem statements, or questions, to frame the content of their unit. HPS is among the first states to adopt the Next Generation Science Standards, which align with the PBL methodologies. The PBL Resource Center plans to continue working with Hartford Schools in the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.
