I'm forwarding this to the main mailing list. This seems like a fun idea!
Any Tuesday at 7 is usually a good time to come down and pitch ideas. This
Tuesday we have a speaker but feel free to come on down.

Subject: museum in a box project
With many kids unable to take field trips with the frequency that I did as
a child I have this idea for a portable museum project called MBox. The
idea is to create (relatively) small see through boxes, that house
electrical, mechanical, biological, chemical processes that can be placed
in community centers, schools, libraries etc. Many kids have no working
knowledge of the insides of a computer or the car their family drives; even
less knowledge about biology or chemistry.
My goal is too make these boxes cheaply so they can be placed where kids
frequent maybe even outdoors in poor neighborhoods.
I'd like to talk to Hive13 about this idea. Let me know when a meeting is
