Project MASH

On Project MASH, classroom teachers can learn from and collaborate with some of the nation's most innovative learning organizations. They can also share unique, project-based learning experiences with their teaching peers and their students. Teaching resources and toolkits support their implementation of problem-based learning, design thinking, and engagement games into classroom practice.
