CORPORATE SPONSORS & LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS

We would like to thank the following organizations for their generous annual contribution to the Porter Program. Because of these gracious donations, we are able to continue to provide high-quality innovative educational programs and events in addition to supporting some of our general operating costs.

LAKE METROPARKS

Lake Metroparks, the Lake County Educational Service Center, and the Porter Program for Science & Mathematics have embarked on an exciting new partnership! As part of this partnership, the Porter Program has relocated to the Lake Metroparks Environmental Learning Center in Concord Township. Lake Metroparks has provided much in-kind support to the Porter Program, which has allowed the program to greatly expand both its indoor and outdoor educational capacity. Thanks to this generous partnership with Lake Metroparks, the Porter Program also has access to much educational technology including use of the biotech lab and lab equipment, observatory, hydroponic greenhouse, polyvision interactive whiteboards, field equipment, and much much more. Thank you, Lake Metroparks!!

AUBURN CAREER CENTER
PARTNERSHIP


Since our inception, Auburn Career Center has been a major partner. Up to and through the 07-08 school year, Auburn Career Center provided in-kind housing, including maintenance and much program support to the Porter Program for Science & Mathematics. Starting in the 08-09 school year, Auburn Career Center still steps up as a strong partner to the Porter Program by providing much tech support as we set up our infrastructure at the Lake Metroparks Environmental Learning Center. We anticipate developing additional educational initiatives as we evolve over at our new home.
