DARPA-funded High School Hackerspaces

Listen to a report on NPR’s “All Things Considered" about the military putting millions of dollars into hacker spaces. The money is coming from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. It’s been called the Defense Department’s venture capital firm — in the past it played a key role in the development of GPS systems and the Internet. Now, a big portion of the new money will go to fund hackerspaces in high schools, including one at Analy High School in Sebastopol, California.
