The Longmont school recently won the $15,000 Succeeds Prize for Excellence in STEM Education, with the school planning to use the money to design and build an outdoor space.

The $15,000 prize, presented by Ball Corporation, was awarded to Northridge as an "outstanding example of science, technology, engineering and math education."

"We help kids tap into their passions and discover new ones," said Northridge Principal Lorynda Sampson. "If they have a sense of fun while they're here, the learning will stick with them."
