On Saturday May 6, 2017, Porter High School hosted the first ever PHS School Maker Faire. The maker movement is growing at an extreme pace to meet the demands of the millennial mind-set and the exponential changes in the technological landscape. The Maker Faire is a celebration of this movement through invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. It’s a place to show what we’ve made and to share what we’ve learned with others. Maker Faires are a perfect combination of part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new. Please click the title to read all about the momentous event!
