About Geekbus

The Geekbus is a mobile makerspace that travels to schools and other organizations to provide STEM educational experiences in their classrooms.  Our goal is to spark students’ interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).   With the explosive growth of STEM careers in San Antonio, our programs aim to inspire the next generation of local STEM talent, by focusing on schools and other educational programs that serve underserved populations.

Inside the Geekbus, you will find 3D printers, robotics, electronics, and maker materials for hands on exploring.  Thanks to the generosity donor grants and public support, 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.

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.  Tesoro, Rackspace, the 80/20 Foundation, the Maker Education Initiative, 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 to apply these concepts to solve problems that not only exist in the classroom, but in their daily lives as well. By utilizing Project Based Learning, we also provide students with real world scenarios for learning.

We offer 7 STEM programs for students in Kindergarten through High School:

  • Robotics
  • 3D Printing
  • Renewable Energy
  • Video Game Design
  • Hardware Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Computer Software Engineering

Maker Camps

In order to maintain student engagement and to prevent summer slide while school is out, the Geekbus conducts STEM-Maker camps. These camps combine our high quality educational programs, and extend our basic exploratory Maker activities, to provide students continual learning over the course of a week during their spring and summer breaks.
