Welcome to the Discovery Center at St. Paul's Lower School
[ "What is PBL-STEAM?" ]




Hello, students! Welcome to St. Paul’s School’s Discovery Center. Wuff! My name is Max, Mr. May’s yellow lab, and I am the official mascot for the Center. Ruff! Ruff! Mr. May has asked me to share with you a little about what goes on in the Center, so here goes: You will learn new and exciting things in a really cool way called Problem Based Learning. Or P B L! What is it? Glad you asked! Wuff! Let me see if I can make it easy. You know. In "kid lingo". It’s about solving problems that are important to you. Real-life stuff. And that's awesome. Through P B L, you will also become a "S-T-E-A-M Inventor". By applying what you learn in SCIENCE and MATH and the ARTS, and by using TECHNOLOGY, you will ENGINEER incredible projects! Then you will share your work with local and global communities, learning to express yourselves effectively. P B L is F U N! So go for it! Good-day, mates!
