There are lots of ways to help!

Current Projects

Routine Laser Cutter maintenance (contact Bryan Lee, #laser_engraver slack channel)

  • Ongoing procedure development

Shop Bot CNC setup in new space (contact Bill Stillwell, #cnc slack channel)

  • Install & level bed
  • Set up computer

Wood Shop setup in new space (contact Chris VerKuilen, #wood_shop slack channel)

Other Ways to Help

- Volunteer at an upcoming event!

- Teach a class

- Volunteer for our Making The Future program (contact Bill Shaw)

- Help fundraise. Ever wrote a grant application before? (contact Tracey Birch)

- Sort and tear down donated items

- Update the wiki (See the Style Guides for example pages - copy & paste from the edit box to save yourself some typing!)


If every member volunteered just 4-6 hours per month, our space would be even more awesome than it is now!


Donations needed

Cash is nice but we're happy to get donations of materials, especially for our Kids' Open Make projects, such as:

  • White glue
  • Wooden craft ("popsicle") sticks
  • Arts & Crafts kits (if pieces are missing, PLEASE let us know!)
  • Polymer clay
  • Yarn and embroidery floss
  • Felt and fabric remnants
  • Card stock, drawing/watercolor paper, scrapbooking paper
  • Rubber bands, paper clips, binder clips, paper fasteners
  • Batteries (9-volt, AA, and coin cell / 2032)
  • Electronic components: LEDs, resistors, switches & buttons, wire
  • Paint smocks / shirts (or other cover-ups, for messy projects)
  • Hot glue guns and sticks
