Portola Valley schools host third annual Maker Faire

The Portola Valley School District will highlight the work of inventors, tech enthusiasts, hobbyists, crafters, artists and "Do it Yourselfers" at its third annual Maker Faire on Friday, April 12, at Corte Madera School.

The one-day event is open to the public and will showcase kindergarten through 8th-grade projects, many of which were designed and developed in the Ormondale and Corte Madera "makerspaces," according to an event description.

There will also be projects on display from staff and parents. Many of the projects are hands-on, according to the event description.

In 2015, the Portola Valley Schools Foundation raised over $150,000 for the district's makerspaces, or STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) labs, engineering and science curriculum, and the robotics team.

The event is free and runs from noon to 3:30 p.m. at the school, 4575 Alpine Road in Portola Valley.
