A New Direction

Between 2013 and 2023, Lucas Education Research, a George Lucas Educational Foundation division, collaborated with esteemed university education researchers. Together, they worked on building a robust evidence base for project-based learning as an effective approach for all students, particularly those from communities underserved economically and in terms of racial and ethnic representation. Explore the research findings and additional materials.

In 2023, the George Lucas Educational Foundation took an exciting new step by launching a division dedicated to developing authentic learning simulations for schools. This work, based on the design principles validated in project-based learning research, will occur in collaboration with strategic partners.
