FAB & STEAM Project Based Learning is a student-centered pedagogy in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an open-ended, authentic, engaging, complex, and transdisciplinary question, problem, or challenge. Rooted in the TPACK teaching method and the human-centered design process, students are challenged to create an artifact of their learning utilizing digital fabrication that can be presented to the public.
