Empowered STEM Education is project-based learning with two important differences. Students participating in an Empowered STEM classroom are tackling the big challenges facing their world and they are applying their solutions to improve where they live and play. 

Empowered STEM Education builds on the foundation of project-based learning (PBL), incorporates the latest research in STEM education, launches from lessons in environmental education, and leverages the activism of action civics. Empowered STEM Education provides a framework for PBL that gives young people the opportunity to solve the issues facing their communities – in the process it transforms classrooms into exciting, engaging civic laboratories where classroom lessons are meaningful to students.
