Case studies indicate that embedding learning in meaningful context can attract and retain a broader range of students to STEM careers. This action research project assessed the impact of project-based-learning and engineering design on 22 high school physics students. Female students showed strongest growth. The biggest impact for all students was an increase in the belief that students are successful in science due to their effort.
