Join us in the fully-stocked Girl Scouts of Western Washington Seattle MAKERSPACE for self-directed Open Time. Have a specific Maker-machine you’ve been curious to try out? Or a project that a specific tool could really help with? Or just come explore the space and see what materials inspire you!

Open Time is unstructured self-directed time. Registrants have access to all the tools and materials in the Makerspace to create and explore as they want. Come with a project in mind or get inspired on the spot. Two facilitators will be on hand to help get participants set up on any projects or equipment, but ability to work one-on-one is limited and depends on demand.
 
This time is exclusively for Girl Scouts. Stay tuned for occasional "Friend & Family" sessions in the future.

Please only register participants you have already confirmed plan to/can attend. Space in this event is limited. You may prevent fellow Girl Scouts from having this opportunity if you register before checking if your participants can/plan to attend.
 
Cost: $5 per Girl Scout Youth. Participants must register in advance. Two 2-hour sessions are available during the day. Participants may register in advance for multiple sessions in order to complete different or longer projects.

Tools & Materials
  • The registration fee covers fair use of the Makerspace, tools, and materials during the session time. We ask attendees to be cooperative with each other and “Use Resources Wisely�?.  Unused materials will not be taken from the space.
  • Use of specific tools or materials or quantities of materials cannot be guaranteed or reserved in advance.
  • Limit one laser cut project per person, per day (limit about 6 square inches of material). We will try and accommodate custom requests, depending on time and assuring all attendees who want a project can complete one during session time first, before beginning potentially longer-need projects.
  • We will 3D print projects in order. 3D printing is time consuming and most projects designed during Open Time will not be printed during session—we will print & mail finished projects after workshop if wanted.
  • Outside materials or tools may be brought in by attendees.
