Northwest AEA's Jordan Menning, an educational consultant, was recently highlighted in several national publications about project-based learning, or PBL. All schools within Northwest AEA have access to training from Jordan to use DefinedSTEM, which provides teachers with standards-aligned project-based lessons. DefinedSTEM uses engaging performance tasks to answer the question: "Why do I need to learn this?," which is always on the mind of students.
