Project-Based Learning at the early childhood level can be difficult to wrestle with because of its open-ended nature. This presentation will discuss research on what aspects of a PBL course, within a STEM minor, helps PreK-4 education students become comfortable with this as an approach to teaching. Applications of PBL in distance learning modalities and connections to research will be discussed as well.
