The Spark embodies a culture of creativity and 'Do it yourself" making and tinkering in a fun and safe environement for all. As such safety is of the upmost priority for all who use our tools, resources and spaces. As a space safety is a critical part of our accident prevention initiative. Spark crew, students, and visitors to our spaces may be exposed to hazards or dangerous materials or machinery. Proper use, including understanding bounderies for use, best practices, acceptable use cases, and governing guidlines all assisting in creating a culture of safety in our spaces.
This course allows students to discovery the hand and power tools available through The Spark Makerspace. Safety and proper tools use and selection is a large factor in successfully completing a project. Safety is a priority so knowledge is important. Hand tools are non-powered, which includes pliers, wrenches, screw drivers, hammers, etc. Power tools on the other hand have a power source, most of those available in The Spark are battery operated although some are electric with a power cord. The greatest hazards posed by tools results from misuse and improper handling. In this instruction/training program attention will be given to tool selection, tool use, and proper personal protective equipment that are required to be used when operating the specific tool.
This is required training prior to being able to use the Tools in the Spark.
