Read all about our Awesomenaut Program on the website:


For New Awesomenauts


Orientation is a 4 hour session and kicks-off the program for the season. The typical agenda is:

  • Welcome
  • Scheduling and program overview
  • Facilities training & first projects


What to wear

  • Closed-toed shoes, shop-appropriate clothing (clothes that can get dirty, long pants, no loose or dangly clothes or accessories, long hair tied back)
  • Basic protective gear is provided (safety glasses and gloves, ear protection) but feel free to bring your own if you have it

What to bring

  • Your schedule availability
  • Water bottle

Shifts and Scheduling

Tell us your interests & availability

  • Everyone should fill out this interest & availability form to help us plan group projects and independent projects for your weekly 8 hours. Ideally we'll have a few small groups working based on your schedules and you'll self manage your additional 4 hours.

Manage your own shifts

  • We all use a shared google calendar to tell each other when we'll be in. If you're ready to go with independent shifts, add a weekly appointment to the shared calendar with your name in the title.

How to add and change your shifts


Adopt a Tool

One of the ongoing projects for Awesomenauts is Adopt-A-Tool. We use the wiki for our crowd-sourced tool to keep track of our tools & equipment here on our wiki. We always have new tools & equipment and aren't always the best at keeping track of documentation.

We'd like all Awesomenauts to adopt a tool and make sure it is up to date with all the required information!

First step is to create an editing account:

Once you have submitted that, we will approve the request and you can go on wiki-ing!
