A survey of
alumni from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Massachusetts,
which features a project-based curriculum, explored the long-term
impacts of project-based learning. For each of the 39 impact areas
assessed, women in particular reported that project-based learning had
positively impacted their success. This adds to a growing body of
research that project-based learning, a key component of CTE, may help
to recruit and retain women into STEM fields.
