Doctor Geek’s Laboratory of Applied Geekdom

It’s the 21st Century.  Ever wondered what happened to all those inventions, conveniences, and other concepts the future was suppose to bring?  Well, so have we.  Here, at Doctor Geek’s Laboratory, we will explore all the realms of applied geekdom.  We will examine the future that was, the future that is, and the future that has not yet come to pass.

Doctor Geek established the lab and science fair as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) outreach.

Through enthusiasm, passion, and humor, we hope to bring our audience closer to the scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs, tinkerers, and others who are attempting to bring about the world of tomorrow.  Together we will help the future along … give it a push where it’s needed.


Doctor Geek’s Moment in Science Mini-sodes
