Maker Fair and Shark Tank for Entrepreneurial Students at SPS
January 6th, 2017
On Friday, January 13, 2017, St. Peter’s School will host our second annual Maker Fair and Shark Tank. This event replaces a traditional career fair with presentations from professionals whose careers focus on “making” and other entrepreneurial pursuits. Presenters range from fashion designers to construction experts to restaurateurs to astronomers. After presentations, interested students will present an “elevator pitch” and field questions from a panel of expert judges of the “Shark Tank.” At the end of the day, one particularly enterprising student will walk away with the funding to make their idea a reality. This event provides students with the unique opportunity to learn directly from the source about careers they might one day pursue, while encouraging them to start putting their own ideas into action.
