The thrilling adventures of a geek volunteering at his kids' schools to promote geek-dom.
For the last 3 terms I've been running a weekly session in all things geek, from Guido van Robot programming to Lego Mindstorm, circuit-glue to cyber-safety, rocketry to metallurgy.
My motivation is to inspire curiosity, the burning desire to know how things work (and how to make them work better), in short: geek-dom.
My talk is about how to do this in a minimal budget using not much more than remastered Linux DVDs, salt and LEDs.
The title is my challenge to the community: find yourself a classroom and spread the word!
