This chapter explores the educational practices employed to motivate young people to become interested and study science careers. Educators of the University of Kentucky (UK), College of Agriculture, Food and Environment’s (CAFE) Environmental and Natural Resources Initiative consider their use of real-life situations and projects to teach science to Kentucky’s K-12 students. The educators demonstrate how they use project-based learning in conjunction with community-based issues to interest students in science topics and careers. Multiple examples of community-based science programs are described along with reflections from students and teachers. Recommendations for future projects methodologies are included.

Keywords:   project-based learning, place-based education, science education, environmental education
