MakerSpace Student Volunteers (Parent)

ISY MakerSpace Student Volunteer Agreement Form (Parent)

  • The ISY MakerSpace is a place for students to create, invent, tinker, build and learn. Due to the hands on nature of our activities, responsible behavior is expected. As a designated MakerSpace Volunteer I understand the guidelines and rules must be followed at all times. I also understand that given my role as a MakerSpace Volunteer I have an additional responsibility to make sure the equipment is used properly and that my role is to provide support to the teachers in the MakerSpace.

    I also understand that I must demonstrate an understanding of the various equipment and must pass a practical test before I can become an official MakerSpace Volunteer.

    After reading over the guidelines and rules, be sure you sure you understand what is expected, then please sign and return it to ISY.
