Taking the hard out of hardware: Project works to connect people to the internet

Update 7/2/2010: Free Geek Chicago’s training classes have started. See their education page for details.

Education has always been an important part of FreeGeek Chicago’s mission, but the project hasn’t had a systematic teaching program. Until now. Volunteers are converting part of the project’s Logan Square basement workshop into a classroom in preparation for classes focusing on practical computing.
