Basic tools can be accessed by completing BeAM 101 training. This introductory course is a prerequisite to all other BeAM tool trainings. The basic tools category at BeAM encompasses a wide range of instruments. It includes hand tools like screwdrivers, pliers, and clamps. It also includes simple tools like foam cutters, acrylic benders, and power drills. Once you take BeAM 101, you can use anything that falls into the ‘basic tools’ category – ask a staff member if a tool requires additional training.

Makerspaces that have these tools: Murray, Hanes, and Carmichael

Ready to start making with basic tools? The first step is to sign a Safety Waiver and Release, complete the Sakai orientation module (button below), and attend a BeAM 101 training. Onyen login required. Please note that waivers are not a registration for trainings.
