This is our big ol’ Internet chatroom. You can connect with Leadership, other members, and ask questions.

Get Your Fob
Now that you’re a member, you have 24/7, 365 access to the makerspace. Your electronic keyfob grants you access. You will need to meet up with someone in Leadership at TheLab to get and activate your fob. (You can either message us in Slack or write to leadership@thelab.ms)
