First Time Users

Come for a quick chat/tour with us and learn about the different and uniques things that you can make!

Or if you already know that you want to use our MakerSpace, attend an Orientation & Safety Training!  This training is mandatory for anyone wanting to use the MakerSpace.  The training is about an hour and you do not need to register in advance.

Once you have received the safety training, passed a quiz, and filled out a form, you can start making!

Note: Closed-toe shoes required at all times in our facility.
