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).
