Minors will be allowed to use the various shop spaces within Ideaworks with the supervision of their parent or guardian (clear line of sight) with the following conditions:
- Member and non-member minors may enroll in classes or participate in other organized activity at Fresno Ideaworks (e.g. CoderDojo, Family FabLabs) with the instructor's or mentor's approval. Minors will be allowed to use tools and machines specific to that activity with the instructor's approval and guidance in the presence of a parent or designee.
- A minor's parent or guardian can designate another adult to supervise the minor in writing, which should be handed to a shop steward on duty by the minor’s parent or guardian. The designated adult must agree to supervise the minor in advance; the minor can’t simply be dropped off in hopes that an adult already at the shop will agree to supervise.
- All other Fresno Ideaworks criteria still apply. Anyone using a tool or shop space, regardless of age, must be pre-approved to use it by the shop space Lead.
