The Maker Hub is defined by the people who use it! If you are interested in using the Maker Hub for an academic or personal project, simply come by during open hours and one of our Volunteers will let you in!
There a several ways to get involved with the Maker Hub. The easiest is simply to drop in during our open hours, ask one of our friendly staff or volunteers to show you around, and start making. There's (almost) always someone in the space who can show you how to use any of our equipment, and we love learning together!
Who’s in our Community? Roles and Expectations:
Manager of Maker Hub
David Strout is the Manager of the Maker Hub. The Manager turns the mission into policies, procedures, and programming. He also makes decisions about purchases, and oversees the organization and design of the physical and digital spaces of the Maker Hub.
Monitors & Volunteers
Monitors and Volunteers are the backbone of the Maker Hub. They welcome our visitors, help them learn new tools, and provide advice on projects according to their expertise. When not helping visitors, they are cleaning and organizing the space, learning new tools, and working on other projects that improve and promote the Maker Hub.
Volunteers work a single 2-hour shift each week, and in return get a personal keycode which can be used to access the Maker Hub outside of open hours.
Monitors work approximately 5-10 hours each week, are given a personal keycode, and are paid for their time.
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer, please contact the Maker Hub at email@example.com. Please check HoyaWorks for open Monitor positions.
Maker Neighbors are people that are not directly GU affiliated, but have special expertise that they share with the Maker Hub Community through volunteer hours, mentorship, and special projects. If you'd like to become a Maker Neighbor, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
