Make Magazine has a great story on the Geekbus (Geekbus Moves to Educate Young Makers) in San Antonio, Texas. It would be great to see something like all across the country and the world. Sure, permanent hacker/maker spaces are cool, but there is a special power in taking the technology right to the doorstep of those that want and need it most.
"Geekbus is the community outreach arm directed by Sastemic , a non-profit organization connecting professionals, educators, industry, and the community. The Geekbus project is designed to aid schools in promoting STEM studies, provide students with diverse learning experiences, and teach skills directly relevant to jobs in the tech industry. "
