Welcome to the Elko Engineering Garage knowledge base!

The Elko Engineering Garage is a makerspace located at the University of Alberta. The purpose of the Garage is to provide an open, hands-on work space for collaboration and building, with an emphasis on learning through experience in a peer-supported, social, and knowledge sharing environment.

This site is a wiki for both staff and Makers, and contains information specific to working in the Garage. All Makers should familiarize themselves with the Emergency Procedures, Expectations and Agreement, and Register for a Training Account sections. For more information on the tools and equipment available, you can visit the Equipment sections. The site also contains a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Repository, a Training Registration Calendar, and many applications resources with each tool page. 

Space Guidelines:

  1. Respect the intent of the Garage. 
  2. Safety is a shared responsibility.
  3. Ensure you meet PPE requirements for the space and activity. 
  4. Respect each other and the space itself.
