About Geekbus

The Geekbus is a mobile makerspace that travels to schools or other organizations to provide STEM educational experiences in their classrooms. Our goal is to spark students’ interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Inside the Geekbus, you will find 3D printers, robotics, electronics, and maker materials for hands on exploring. With our programs, students will be given the opportunity to learn new skills by using tools and equipment that they may not have access to otherwise.

With the explosive growth of STEM careers in San Antonio, our programs aim to create the next generation of local STEM talent, by focusing on schools and other educational programs that serve underserved populations.

The Geekbus program is operated by SASTEMIC, a San Antonio nonprofit organization aimed at connecting education, business, industry and military to bolster the local STEM economy. Rackspace, the 80/20 Foundation, Geekdom, and Cognizant are also strategic partners in support of the Geekbus.

Programs

The goal of all Geekbus programs is to inspire and spark students’ interest in skills needed for the 21st Century. We teach students the value of “Design Thinking,” encouraging them apply these concepts to solve problems that not only exist in science and technology, but in their daily lives as well. By utilizing Project Based Learning we also provide students with real world scenarios for learning. With the Geekbus education programs, students will learn new skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). We offer programs from Kindergarten through High School and focus on 5 STEM pathways:

• Video Game Design
• Robotics
• 3D Printing
• Computer Software Programming
• Computer Hardware Programming
