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.
