PBL Classes

Online Project Based Learning (PBL)

Project Based Learning Classes are classes you work on online, at school, or at home under the direction of a Hamilton certified teacher.  Online Project Based Learning classes are available to all traditional Hamilton students and Hamilton Flex students.  An online class will guide the student towards completion of a project.  Students are required to communicate weekly with a mentor teacher.  There is an opportunity at the end of each semester to share and display the project in Hamilton at an expo.   In addition to the project based learning online class, the student may chose an extended learning opportunity taught by a community expert to apply their learning.

See this PDF for the Essentials of Project Based Learning.

Syllabus for monthly kits - varies by kit.  Each online class will include supplemental videos to give a better understanding of the kit and require a monthly project to be completed.
