Yesterday, I shared my impressions of our visit to the Excelsior Science Workshop, which is associated with Mission Science Workshop and Community Science Workshop. Read about it here:

MAKE | Turnin’ Vermin into Learnin’

Sol McKinney, Dan Sudran, Emilyn Green, and their colleagues inspire me with what they’re doing in sites in some of the most under-served urban a rural neighborhoods of California. They have modeled for us the future we have long imagined and hoped for: a network of open, accessible community workspaces, nestled in neighborhoods with urgent needs for more quality science and technology learning resources. The access feels more like that of a public library: they require no parental involvement, not even a permission slip, to come and use the space.
