Supporters

Thanks to the following design program (formerly artscience) supporters for lending their time, talents and energy

We are grateful to our program mentors, expert speakers and others who have provided insight, feedback and advice to our students. In addition to expert advice, we ask you to consider additional support to help us continue to make this program available. 

To fufill our dreams, we need materials, technology and other staff resources to better serve our students and provide a maker-lab space for project design, experimentation and creation. Your support will fuel not only the inventions of Perpich students, but student innovations throughout Minnesota as we bring our program model to other public schools.

Can you help us? Call or email Tory Peterson, design instructor, at tory.peterson@pcae.k12.mn.us or 763-279-4292.

Thanks for your generosity.
