With the increasing number of STEM and kid-friendly events at the Labs, we get more and more inquiries about family membership. Nova Labs is happy to announce the introduction of a family membership program.
Family membership is an extension of the full membership, it covers another member of the primary member’s household. In other words, a full member can extend his or her privileges to one additional family member – a maker spouse, a maker child, a maker parent – at no extra charge. Additional family members may join the same membership for an additional $10 per month. In other words, a family of 4 can enjoy full membership for $120.
Family members are subject to the same training and access requirements as the primary member. They have to attend a Green orientation, sign the release form and the member agreement, and adult members (over 16 years old) should be OK with the expectations and responsibilities of a full member. There are also certain age restrictions: At Nova Labs, members under 16 must be accompanied at all times by an adult member. To use any part of the workshop unsupervised, the member must be 16 or over, and trained in the tools used.
If you want to extend your current full membership to a family member, please create a new account for that family member at nova-labs.org, and email the name of the new member and the primary member to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an associate and would like to become a full member, talk to your sponsor.
