Space Colony Spanish PBL part

The end of this week our 8th graders are planning a space colony.  They will have to design it, defend it, govern it and market it.  We incorporate all disciplines into this project.  The students create an ad to convince Spanish-speaking people to live on their colony.  They can create it on paper or electronically.  This year, I added a newspaper component.  Students have to write an article about things that they missed from earth (in the past tense) and things that they enjoy on their colony now (present tense).  They also have to include pictures and captions in Spanish.  These could also stand alone as individual assignments.  They could   I am excited to see how they turn out!  Do yall participate in grade-wide PBL activities?  What do you do?
