At PBLWorks, we believe that all students—no matter where they live or what their background—should have access to quality Project Based Learning (PBL) to deepen their learning and achieve success in college, career, and life.  

Our exclusive focus is Project Based Learning. Why? Because PBL advances educational equity and empowers youth furthest from opportunity. We believe PBL is transformative for all kids. Through PBL, students engage in learning that is deep, long-lasting, and relevant to the challenges of their lives and the world they will inherit.

Our services, tools, and research are designed to build the capacity of K-12 teachers to design and facilitate quality Project Based Learning, and the capacity of school leaders to create a culture for teachers to implement great projects with all students.


We are current and former educators with experience in PBL and deep respect for teachers. We strive to offer an unrivaled level of service to guide educators in their journey toward a sustained, high-quality PBL practice.
