Youth as young as 8 years of age can become Makerspace members and have access to classes and equipment!
For the safety of everyone in our Makerspace community, please note that all member responsibilities, safety guidelines, rules, shop etiquette, and policies outlined in the Makerspace Membership Agreement also apply to our members from 8 years and older (You will receive the agreement, when signing up for a membership).
As there are different levels of inherent risk in both the environment and the operation of Makerspace's various tools and equipment, designated shop areas and classes have varying age minimums, and some equipment requires successful completion of a Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class prior to independent use.
Classes highlighted in the Solo Age Groups - 12 to 14 and 15 years and above - indicate that minors are permitted to participate in those classes without parental supervision.
If we decide to change our Minors and Shop Access, we will post those changes on this page, and/or update Minors and Shop Access modification date below. This policy was last modified in March 2021.
If there are any questions regarding this policy, you may contact us using the information in Contact us.
