Current Project – Concord Hacker Scouts (or similar) Child Education program

My post about this one might be less informative than the post about the wiki – check back and this idea will be more fully baked for public consumption and participation in a future post but I wanted to post something up about this.

We are going to start up an after school program to teach STEAM education type stuff to kids.

We are currently checking out Hacker Scouts because they’ve done an amazing job of starting up a project like this over in Oakland.

What we need:

1.  A place where we can meet up after school, on weekends and during the summer to teach stuff to kids.  It’s going to need to have convenient parking.  If it was within walking distance of BART that would be perfect but if not that’s okay too.  Also, we’d love to have a secure place there where we could leave things.

2.  Related to us not having #1 — we could really use a list of educators who teach shop classes and computer classes in the Concord area.  If you are interested, we have a start on this so I’ll create a partially filled-in Google document which I’ll share with you.

Really, this is still in the early stages and as the volunteer coordinator I’m not totally in the loop right now.  If you are interested please get in touch with me at joseph@eastbayhackers.com and I’ll fill you in.  Or just come to the next meeting and you can hear about this first hand with me when we’re there.
