Please use our new entryway:
The rear door, with the Splash card reader, will be locked but it will continue to provide access to our staff.
The Maker Ninjas (student workers) and faculty members responsible for the operation of the MakerSpace are listed under People, and users with special requests are encouraged to contact them.
Users with special need to access the Maker Space should get in touch with the Director or one of the Advisors, who are listed under People
Preventing injury to people (and equipment) is our first priority. To do this, users must demonstrate knowledge and competence. Users can earn a "badge" that certifies their competence. The various badges, and the equipment authorized by that badge, can be found here: PPE
Along with the badge, the user's RFID card will be recognized to turn on power to equipment. For example, a user who's completed the requirements for the Metal-1 badge will be allowed to use the drill press, vertical band saw, and some of the portable tools.
Information on basic training, and on the badges that can be earned to use power tools, can be found at Badges and Training
