New Policies

Due to COVID-19 the Eskenazi School Fabrication Labs will be available by reservation only until further notice.

Walk-ins are prohibited

Online reservation systems limit traffic and ensure the safety of our users and staff. Each lab has strict capacity limits, a rigorous cleaning protocol, and has undergone reorganization and relocation of equipment and work stations to best facilitate social distancing.
