As someone who is in the space, right now, sitting to the right of maestro, watching
him browse Bitcoin(tm) daytrading websites, I just watched a mother show her young daughter
around the space.  They even poked their head into the dirty shop and emerged with all limbs intact. 

Right now the space is full of people hacking away on radio, theremins, public policy and SEO.

I don't see any Creepers but I haven't asked anyone to produce ID.

In all seriousness the space is pretty awesome right now.  Maybe this only happens on Tuesdays.

I think it's awesome that you're working towards this; however, as someone who teaches 11-13 year olds, I absolutely do not think that Noisebridge is currently a safe place for them.  We harbored a known pedophile for months, and there were people in the community who knew his history, but he wasn't removed from the space until after he punched someone in the neck.  If you want to do this, then be ready to stand guard eagle-eyed and actively defend them and remove the creepers for their vicinity.  Don't get me wrong, we're absolutely making progress as a community, but I'd be wary of bringing young girls in.  I think it might do more to discourage them than encourage them, to be honest.
