The PHS Formula High School racecar will be on display, as will the PHS Beat the Heat Camaro, restored by PHS and Lakeshore Technical College students using proceeds from previous car shows.

The school’s renovated auto shop also will be open, so visitors can see the hands-on learning opportunities that students have in their technology education classes.

Brats and other food will be available for purchase, to raise money for the auto shop and extracurricular programs. Funds help pay for new tools, books and electronics that increase student learning experiences.
