We had a chance to meet and have a discussion with several members of The Geek Group and things got really nerdy, really fast. The Geek Group is a collection of people who all share the same passion: A love of science. Their mission is to generate excitement around, about and get people of all age groups more interested in science, technology, design, and mathematics. Founded in 1994, The Geek Group has grown to include over 26,000 members worldwide. Based in Grand Rapids, MI The Geek Group is a dream for those with a mind geared towards creation. A makerspace deluxe, The Geek Group has a high voltage lab, a machine shop, robotics lab, 3D printers, and audio/visual production spaces at your disposal, so no matter what you’re in to, your needs are covered.
Here, Lis Bokt gives us the skinny on The Geek Group, while Paul Kidwell shows off an awesome miniature nuclear fusion machine.
