What is experiential project‑based learning?
Experiential project-based learning is a teaching method that involves students designing, developing and constructing hands-on solutions to a problem with a company or non‑profit partner. Using project‑based learning, students can build upon their creative capacity by working through real‑world problems. Students typically work on these projects in small teams.
