Some equipment in think[box] requires training to use, particularly the machines in the metal and wood shop. These machines can cause serious harm if used improperly, so we provide training free of charge to ensure the safety of our users while giving them the skills to work effectively.
No one is allowed to enter the metal shop or woodshop without wearing an ability badge. Stop by the lab during any of our open hours and ask a Student Worker for an ability badge. They will give you a brief safety orientation and you will get a badge.
Please note an ability badge is not required for the general studio space.
