Please use our new entryway:
We're open Monday through Friday when classes are in session. We are closed for Mardi Gras.
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.
On-line basic training materials are found here: https://tulane.learnerhall.com/Tulane/LearnerWeb_PTM.asp?ActionID=Launch&CourseID=TMS101CBT
Every MakerSpace user (defined as anyone who touches any tool or piece of equipment) must complete the Basic Training online course, and sign the waiver form (available from any Ninja). All users must go through additional training procedures in order to earn a badge that conveys access to the restricted power tools.
