Aurora Frontier Wins National Science Lab Makeover Contest

AuroraFrontierFalconStudents and staff at Aurora Frontier P-8 have plenty to celebrate these days, thanks in part to a national science lab makeover contest they recently won.

The Falcons participated in the Northrop Grumman Foundation Fab School Labs Makeover Contest, where middle schools across the country submitted photos and videos of their current science classroom(s) and shared their visions for a dream STEM lab makeover. After advancing to the semifinal round of 20, Aurora Frontier enlisted the help of students, staff, parents and community members in a one-day-only voting campaign to help them win.

Aurora Frontier — Colorado's lone representative in the contest — is one of only five winning schools and will receive $100,000 to assist school leaders in creating a state-of-the-art STEM lab. Throughout the process, Frontier will partner with science education resource company Flinn Scientific on science supplies and innovative ideas to help teachers and students succeed. The new STEM lab will provide unlimited potential for students to expand, enhance and advance their learning, ensuring their STEM-related coursework is exciting and engaging.

Congratulations, Aurora Frontier! Check out their winning video submission below:
