Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures helps inspire the next generation of science enthusiasts by supporting "The Geek Group" at the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire.


The Geek Group is a not-for-profit educational organization based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with more than 6,000 members around the world. The major aim of the Geek Group is to provide access to various topics in science, technology, engineering and math, enabling individuals to learn, explore, innovate and play at an independent pace.  

The Geek Group is sponsored by numerous companies. Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures, manufacturer of the world's most frequently specified fiberglass enclosures, was one of several Michigan-based businesses that participated in supporting the Geek Group's efforts at the recent Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire. Stahlin donated an enclosure to house the "Project Groucho Marx Generator"—a 100,000 volt DC power supply.
