This is located at the SPARK! Discovery Preschool (part of the SVVSD).  These guys are great.  I went to their open house a week or so ago and was very impressed with what they've built.
They've got a Make/Hack/Play space that's effectively a hackerspace in a school.  It's designed to be used by kids from kindergarten to 5th (and in some areas up to 8th grade).
Here's their latest event:
Food Science - Tackle science in the kitchen as you ponder the science behind some favorite treats!  How does popcorn actually pop?  Lots of hands on experiments from jumping raisins, why a cut apple turns brown, the properties of egg whites, hygroscopic cookies and more!

Worth checking out if you have or know someone with elementary school aged kids.
