What Next?

After securing your membership, you must attend a regularly scheduled orientation BEFORE you can start using ANY of the equipment in the space outside of a scheduled training class.

Orientations will happen every Monday, from 2pm-6pm. Orientations are only open to 10 members at a time, and must be booked at the front desk prior to attending.

A full safety and basic use (SBU) course calendar is available online. Each SBU is limited to 5 people, and has a lab fee of 500 KSh for members, or 3,000 KSh for non-members.

Gearbox Lite is open to members for general use from 10am-6pm, Monday through Friday. We can’t wait to help you design, learn, and build. Welcome to Gearbox!
