Areas and Area Champions

The Milwaukee Makerspace has defined areas for specific activities in order to provide a safe environment for the members and the equipment. Please respect the areas and equipment; using them for their intended purpose. Each of the areas has a volunteer member, who has taken on the task of managing the area for the health and safety of the members. These volunteers are our Area Champions.
