0

House4Hack joined Linden High School in Johannesburg for a day at their 2013 Geek Week. Post invitation from the resident Linden High Computer Class teacher, House4Hack moved into formation to create an interactive day outing which closely resembled lots of geeking out in a flash-mob style. One of the objectives was to foster curiosity under the students regarding technology and to expose the students to the concepts and openness of a Hackerspace.
