What a fantastic idea! In a time when so many of our schools don’t have the resources to really give our students what they need when it comes to STEM the Northrop Grumman Foundation just stepped up in a big way. Working in the STEM field for the past 15 years I fully understand how important it is to be able to get this type of support. 
If you’re a teacher, school administrator or just a parent looking for programs that can help your child’s school become more innovative when it comes to STEM then please continue reading because what the Northrop Grumman Foundation is proposing is fantastic! 
The application just opened but will close on June 17th. Good Luck!
From the Northrop Grumman Foundation:
We’re on a mission to get students excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics – better known as STEM.
Why? Because we want today’s students to be a part of tomorrow’s solutions – using STEM to create, design and solve for the needs and demands to come that will make our lives better and easier.
But for that to be possible, students need access to the latest learning tools and technologies and unfortunately, too many of today’s technology labs and science classrooms are not making the grade.
Fab School Labs to the rescue!

After a successful inaugural year for the contest in 2015, the Northrop Grumman Foundation Fab School Labs Contest is back for a second year, making five additional grants of up to $100,000 available to public middle schools for a fabulous school lab makeover.
So if your students are using equipment from their parents’ day and your Bunsen burners could use a boost, then a science, technology, or engineering lab or classroom makeover might be just what your school needs.
Tell us your vision for a dream lab makeover, share a video about your current classroom, and if you are one of up to 25 finalists, invite your local community to vote for your video to help you win. Be creative and get ready to make your dream STEM lab a reality.
