Program Profile

The project provides opportunities for high school/secondary school girls from Arizona and Egypt to learn about working with each other through virtual, collaborative, problem-based learning (PBL) in science.

Moving beyond science content and abilities, the project fosters attitudes and abilities for global STEM leadership in a new approach called Leadership through PBL (LtPBL). Grant leadership and teachers collaborate virtually and face-to-face to design and improve the experiences.
