Visitors From Bayer CropScience

On October 4th, representatives from Bayer Crop Science toured FSI Middle School, followed by a visit to Central Office to learn about the schools plans for building a modern, state-of-the-art Innovation Lab on the first floor of the Central Office building.

This project-based approach is an essential part of immersive STEM education; it makes the experience real for the students. They will be able to conceive a project, be it a product or prototype, and follow the production process from conception to physical reality. Students will understand the technology that powers their creations; both the hardware and the software. The goal is to build a strong, authentic knowledge-based theory to applied skills in STEM education, ensuring Frontier’s high school graduates will be prepared to enter collegiate level science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs with the skills to succeed on day one.

Construction is scheduled to begin in early November and conclude in February, 2022.
