Thank you for posting this post. My campus one year noticed that our data for girls than boys. We created an after-school club that was for girls only that allowed them to be engaged in experiments, learn how careers with female scientists, and allowed them to have success that built self esteem. The next year our girls out preformed the boys!

5 Thank you for this information!
It amazes me how we continue to have this information published about the importance of moving beyond paper and pencil tests, but the school is almost solely rated on paper and pencil tests. Thank you for sharing this information!!

5 Love PBL!
This article I saw later was written for High School, but it still very clearly demonstrates the importance for Project Based Learning!
