P3, an NSF-funded project, was conducted from 2008 until 2013. This project introduced and tested the Scientific Village approach which served as the model for subsequent projects. High school students and high school teachers of science, technology, or mathematics collaborated as learners in villages designed and led by ASU faculty and industry experts. Students were given significant time-on-task to solve challenging, real-world problems.
Never before have high school teachers and students worked as equal partners on collaborative long-term projects. Never before has such a multi-experienced, multi-credentialed, and multi-talented group come together to solve and discuss complex problems. Despite initial skepticism about the likelihood of success of such an approach, P3 demonstrated that the Scientific Village model is effective at increasing student achievement in STEM subjects, interest in STEM careers, and in making a difference in how teachers engage their students in STEM explorations.
