<br>
The Maker Hub is a makerspace open to all George Fox University students for innovating, designing, and creating. It is a 16,000 square foot space located in the [https://www.georgefox.edu/maps_locations/inter_map/campus-facilities/sub.html Klages Center] that comprises several [[Facilities|design areas]] including technical shops, a central tool room, a computer lab, meeting rooms, and general work spaces. The Maker Hub was designed to facilitate learning, encourage entrepreneurship, and add value to the GFU student's educational experience. It's a collaborative environment that is home to senior design and servant engineering teams, guest lectures and community events, design competitions, project exhibitions, and training classes.

The Maker Hub is a makerspace open to all George Fox University members for innovating, designing, and creating. It is a 16,000 square foot space located in the [https://www.georgefox.edu/maps_locations/inter_map/campus-facilities/sub.html Klages Center] that comprises several [[Facilities|design areas]] including technical shops, a central tool room, a computer lab, meeting rooms, and general work spaces. The Maker Hub was designed as a creative space to facilitate learning, encourage entrepreneurship, and add value to the GFU student's educational experience. It's a collaborative community that is home to senior design and servant engineering teams, guest lectures and community events, design competitions, project exhibitions, and training classes. We also have fun on occasion.
The Maker Hub has a limited number of staff and student employees. It is largely run by student volunteers who help with training and overseeing various technical shops. Our students are encouraged to "own" the space. In any public space, there has to be some set of rules that govern the activity in the space. Ideally, we would just use the clever “Rule 0: Don’t make me make a rule.” But, we felt it was better to come up with some overall guiding principles rather than a list of rules. Clearly, there are some obvious “rules” that get implied from these principles, but, we believe that if you embrace the principles, the rules will take care of themselves. These principles we like to call, the [[3 commandments]]: '''Safety First''', '''Reset the Space''', '''Be Professional'''. Please explore the [[3 commandments]] page for a deeper explanation. Many of these Wiki pages will have their own "3 commandments" section to cover unique details for equipment and tools.

There is a 6,000 square foot central room known simply as "[[The Hub]]" which provides a large work area with benches and tools for general making activities.

==[[Facilities]]==
 
==[[Facilities]]==
The Maker Hub is comprised of the following [[Facilities|facilities]]. These links describe each area and the resources within those areas.

==[[Equipment]]==
  −
In general, [[Equipment|equipment]] refers to larger machines than those things one might refer to as a "tool." However, in the Maker Hub, [[Equipment|equipment]] is a special category of machines because, by definitions, ''every'' piece of equipment requires certified training before an individual is allowed to use it. Information on how to achieve this training is provided on the Wiki page for each piece of [[Equipment|equipment]].
  −
[[Equipment]] is marked in the Maker Hub by the use of special icons that are displayed either on, around, or above the equipment. An example icon is this one used for the [[Horizontal Bandsaw]].

==[[Tools]]==
  −
[[Tools]] (both hand tools and power tools) are stored at various locations in the Maker Hub. Tools do not require certified training before use, but users are expected to familiarize themselves with tool operation by viewing the appropriate Wiki page. Furthermore, as part of the '''Safety First'' commandment, users are encouraged to seek help and instruction for any tool that they feel uncomfortable using. Volunteers will be available to serve these needs.

==[[Supplies]]==

<br>
[[Supplies]] include everything from special tooling to parts and materials. Most [[Supplies|supplies]] are kept either in the [[Tool Room]], or generally co-located with the equipment that they service. However, they can also be found at various locations throughout the Maker Hub.
