The aims of this research were 1) The integration of project-based learning to enhance knowledge and creative thinking skills; 2) Comparative assessment of students' learning progress through the utilization of project-based learning; 3) Examination of the capacity for creative output via project-based endeavors; and 4) Student satisfaction regarding project-centered learning management. The study involves 14 students enrolled in Pre-Engineering curriculum. The instruments utilized in this study encompass the instructional activity arrangement plan, assessments measuring learning and creative output capabilities, and satisfaction surveys. Statistical employed comprise mean values, standard deviations, and independent paired t-tests.
The study results reveal that:
1. The project-based learning activities led to significant gains in knowledge, understanding, and learning skills. Students were able to apply their learning collaboratively and bridge existing knowledge with new insights. Additionally, they demonstrated the ability to develop their own projects, evaluate group outcomes, and take pride in their achievements. The overall average value for this aspect was 3.90.
2. The statistical analysis revealed a significant improvement in post-learning progress compared to pre-learning at a significance level of 0.01.
3. The ability to create innovative works through collaborative project-based learning across various activities showed an overall increase. This was assessed based on four aspects: Ability, Creative Ideation, Application of Ideas and Knowledge, and Appreciation. The overall average value for this aspect was 3.59.
4. Students expressed high satisfaction towards project-based learning, both in terms of learning activity organization and the educational benefits. The overall average value for this aspect was 4.26.
