Explorer Membership + Class Bundle Terms & Conditions

Orientation & Check-In: Upon acceptance of membership, you will be briefed on building access, and permitted facility uses. Following your first member visit, you will just check in at the front desk to access permitted shop areas. Be prepared to show ID.

Facility Access: Explorer members are NOT issued key cards for 24/7 access, and need to check in at the front desk each visit. Makerspace access will be provided during staffed hours, Mon-Fri 8a-7p, with the exception of holidays or other posted closures. Members must leave the facility with any personal property by 7pm. Remaining at the facility during unstaffed hours without the express written permission from staff will be grounds for membership termination, without refund for any pro-rata for the remaining time of the month. Members may upgrade to Full Membership for 24/7 access to the shop if they require shop access outside PT hours.

Guest Policy: While guests and visitors are allowed for Full members, additional people are NOT allowed to join part-time users, except during private conference room or classroom event rental times.

Tool Station Access: Explorer members may use any tool station for which they have been cleared by orientation or private instruction. Any tool use fees or on-site supply shop purchases must be paid at time of service (see front desk for full list of tool station hourly rates).

Member Code of Conduct: Explorer members are expected to act in accordance with our ethics and code and conduct outlined for regular members and to refrain from any behavior that is disrespectful or substantively disruptive to fellow members, visitors, or to the space.

While networking is encouraged, Members and guests agree not to engage in aggressive solicitation to other members or guests, such as for the sale of goods or services.

Members and guests agree not to utilize the Idea Foundry spaces or internet connection to conduct any illegal activity.

Membership may be suspended or revoked at the sole discretion of management if a member poses a threat to the health, safety, or property of our community, or code of conduct violations.

Personal security: Please secure all valuables. PT drop-in membership does not include amenities such as dedicated desks with locking cabinets, or locking storage options. Personal property is not to be left on-site overnight, and must be removed with the user by 7pm of any date of day pass redemption. We are not responsible for loss, theft, or damage of any personal property left on-site or in vehicles in parking lots or street parking.
