This project evaluated the effectiveness of using project based learning in an Earth science classroom. Specifically, student learning, engagement and interest, and connections made to student's lives were observed. Using two different units with two different groups of students, it was found that project based learning can have an impact on student learning. Although, in this case the project based format could not be considered the major factor that influenced student growth. Findings did suggest that there was a positive influence on student engagement and interest in Earth science.
