Moon Area School District is the winner of the inaugural K-12 Bold Ideas contest! This national contest challenged school districts across the United States to submit innovative ideas for district-wide transformation and modernization.
As the winner of the contest, Moon Area School District received an award of $100,000 and access to Schneider Electric’s team of experts to support its bold idea; to create a fully functioning aquaponics laboratory for all ability levels to participate and learn.
The lab will provide students STEAM experiences including hands-on training in sustainability, development of work skills for special needs students, and opportunities in a variety of disciplines to solve "real world" problems. The goal of the aquaponics lab is to grow the district’s curriculum in science, technology, business, special education, and engineering. Moon Area School District’s winning idea was unanimously selected as a winner among hundreds of submissions made by schools nationwide.
