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). Visit the CHALLENGES page to view the existing problem based learning curriculum.
