Hi everyone, thank you all again for so patiently waiting for the makerspace to reopen!
Our Reopening Plans seem to be pretty stable at this point so we’ve recently been compiling a monster list of todos to proceed with Phase 1 of the reopening.
We’ve had several people ask how they can be helping, so we’ve identified the subset of items that volunteers can help with and I’m sharing that below. Please note that some of these todos may have dependencies such as going to the space or getting products/info from board members.
If you’d like to help, reply here and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to help out in the safest way possible.
Cleaning and Reorganizing
We have to use very specific cleaning products (“EPA List N”), so we’ll provide those to anyone who wants to help with the deep clean.
Make hand sanitizer stations
Rearrange tables and chairs to minimum 6’ between any seat.
Move the printers to outside the space.
Remove or stow the sofa in the entry area.
Lock away or remove the dishes.
Remove the shared coffee machine.
Remove the water tank from the water cooler and make it clear it’s off-limits.
Remove PPE from the woodshop.
Move the 3D printer out to create more space.
Put everything away at the electronics area and find homes for everything.
Put everything away at the craft area and find homes for everything.
Put everything away at the front desk and find homes for everything.
Put everything away around the restrooms and recycle the cardboard.
Remove additional scrap from the laser cutting area.
Supplies are available. Please contact a board member to coordinate putting markings down.
Tape off the shared parts storage.
Tape off two workstations in the flex space and ensure glue, tape, and other material is available in both workstations.
Establish two workstations with irons, hand tools, and test equipment in the electronics area.
Establish a designated area for a second volunteer on-shift.
All machines and shared stationary tools need to have their high-touch areas marked consistently with colorful electrical tape or paint.
Brian’s working on purchasing the barriers. Once we have them, we could use help with installation.
Install barrier at the front desk.
Install barrier between tables.
You can find sign samples in our shared drive. Please work with us to get sign-off on the wording before spending a lot of time on the design or posting them.
@Jimmy has volunteered to help with signage. Please coordinate with Jimmy if you’d like to help with signs.
