The Buck Institute for Education (BIE) is the leader in providing professional development and support services related to Project Based Learning (PBL), and creates, collects, and shares high-quality PBL tools and resources. BIE believes that all students—no matter where they live or what their background— should have access to quality PBL instruction to deepen their learning and achieve success in college, career, and life. Founded in 1987, BIE is a mission-driven not- for-profit 501(c)3 organization based in Novato, California, and is a beneficiary of the Leonard and Beryl Buck Trust. BIE has provided PBL professional development services to thousands of educators, and ongoing support for organizations including school districts, state departments of education, foundations, and other partners in the United States and around the world. BIE hosts the annual PBL World conference and regional PBL Institutes, and offers books and online resources at its website, bie.org.
