Join ATXHS Discourse hax0r group for access

Hey Hackers,

Exciting news! ATXHS is officially open to all paying members via the ATXHS Discourse hax0r group. Check out the screenshots below to see how to join. As mentioned previously, we will be phasing out our Google Group email lists as we complete the transition to Discourse over the next few weeks.

If you are coming to the space for the first time in a while, be sure to review the “Requirements for Access” and “Expectations at ATXHS” pages outlined in the Reopen Plan doc at

If you have questions about the reopening, please email the Reopen Team at This team consists of thoughtful members in the ATXHS community who have stepped up to put in time, research, and respectful debate to help formulate how we move forward. Please reach out to join the team if you’ve got the bandwidth and capacity to participate in this way!

Don’t forget, our 1st Wednesday Member Meeting is coming up this week — June 3 at 7:30 PM . See the details below in EVENTS. Also, I kept the quick links to information at the bottom of this email like the last update. Use at your leisure!

Stay well and keep making,
Valerie & The ATXHS Board

Reopen Updates

We are officially in Phase 2 (all paying members access)! Some important things to note:

  • Current hours: 7 AM - 12 AM (midnight)
  • Woodshop area has 2 bookable slots
    • The Reopen Team will continue to assess how we can expand woodshop access while maintaining physical distancing
  • Sanitation should be done both before and after your reservation
    • Particularly if you are in a shared area like the woodshop, you should be sanitizing as you move to and from tools
  • Shop stewards will be around to help with questions and ensure cleaning supplies are properly stocked
    • Look for “Steward” on the Skedda reservation titles to identify stewards onsite
  • Make sure you are familiar with the “Requirements for Access” and “Expectations at ATXHS” pages outlined in the Reopen Plan doc at

Help Needed to Expand Spaces Available to Book

We have a few areas of the space which are not yet bookable because the sanitation docs have not been written up (including 3D printers and the autobay). Eric has written details on what we need here. In that document, you will also find links to all the sanitation docs (which will live in this folder here). If you don’t see docs for an area you are interested in booking, help us make them! If you have questions, please reach out to for assistance from the Reopening Team.
