The purpose of this article is to determine project-based learning (PjBL) from the characteristics, effectiveness and implementation aspects of science and science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) education. Eric database was used in order to investigate key words. Thus, this mini review reviewed 36 articles on PjBL for science and STEAM education based on the available Eric database reference. The data obtained were analyzed using content analysis methods. The results showed that on average PjBL can be categorized as a learning model that can improve student learning outcomes in science learning and train students in problem solving (critical thinking). The review reveals that PjBL has an influence on student learning, especially in science and STEAM education. From this article, it can be concluded and can be recommended three recommendations related to the essential success of PjBL in schools.
