Here are the steps to become a member of GPMS. Please note that while younger kids are allowed in the building, you must be 16 or older to become a member and use the makerspace's equipment. (For the full GPMS rules, click here.)
[Note: if you are employed by one of our Corporate Sponsors, please indicate that on the application form. When we have verified your employment, the discounted rate will be applied to your account.]
After your membership is approved, we will contact you to schedule a 1-hour New Member Orientation. At Orientation, you'll take a tour, learn the rules and expectations of the makerspace, and receive your keycard.
This is where you can keep up with various goings-on at the makerspace.
Many of the tools and Labs at GPMS require trainings before you are allowed to use them. These trainings are free to members and are scheduled as needed. We'll talk with you about trainings at your Orientation, but you are always encouraged to contact us when you'd like to schedule a training for a new machine.
Once you have completed the required classes, you're free to use GPMS space and equipment whenever you want! For more information about specific Labs, start here.
