Radloff Middle School is one of 20 public schools around the country that are in the running for a science lab makeover, valued at up to $100,000. More than 200 middle schools applied for one of the five grants, sharing their vision of a “dream science lab” through videos, photos, and essays. Radloff is the only Georgia school among the 20 semifinalists in the contest.
The Fab School Labs contest, sponsored by Northrop Grumman Foundation, is designed to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) by giving public middle schools the opportunity to create the state-of-the-art STEM lab of their dreams.
The five winning schools will work with a design and engineering company to build a lab with all of the tools, resources. and furnishings needed.
Online voting will determine the five grant recipients. If you’d like to help Radloff garner the science lab that students are dreaming of, you can vote for the school online.
