Abstract
The project team is developing a prototype of iSCENE, a website to increase the use of project-based learning through data exchange, resource sharing, and real-time communication. The virtual learning environment will support increased student engagement and motivation in STEM with a goal to increase workforce readiness. The prototype will include a series of project-based learning modules for middle school science classrooms, as well as materials to support implementation. In the Phase I pilot research, the team will examine whether the website functions as planned, if teachers are able to integrate it within the classroom environment, and whether students are engaged with the prototype.
