Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Project-Based Learning (PjBL) is increase effectiveness, create meaningful learning and influence student attitudes in future career pursuit. There are several studies in the literature reporting different aspects of STEM into a PjBL pedagogy. However, the effect of implementing STEM PjBL in terms of improving students' skills in self-efficacy levels in physics mechanics at high school level has not been demonstrated as expected in the

Bandura's social cognitive theory is used to assess and compare the effect of STEM PjBL with conventional teaching method on students' self-efficacy level in learning physics among over 100 high school students. The result illustrated that STEM PjBL improve students' self-efficacy to solve physics problem. Also, the study proposes a guideline for future research.
