1. Be safe
Safety is a primary concern in WATiMake.
Be aware of your surroundings. Work safely. Do not endanger yourself or others around you through your actions or inactions.
All applicable safety standards are observed.
2. Be respectful
Respect the people. Respect the tools. Respect the space.
Be aware of your surroundings. Treat the people in WATiMake as you would your co-workers. Be sensitive, respectful, and inclusive in your interactions with others.
Treat WATiMake as you would your workplace. It is your space, but it is also a space for everyone. Please clean up after yourself, put away tools, and maintain a space that others can work in as well.
3. Think outside the box
What if...? How could your idea be different? What else could it look like?
Innovate. Try something new. Try lots of ideas, approaches, and projects. When they fail, change those ideas. Fail fast and fail often.
Most importantly, come back and try something new!
