In order to work a Build shift, volunteers may sign up for no more than two shifts at a time at the front desk, either by phone or in person. If openings are available when a Builder arrives, they similarly must sign for those shifts at the front desk. If 30 minutes have passed since the beginning of a shift and there are still openings, volunteers may walk-in per Instructor approval.
Reasons for denial of a walk-in may include:
- Insufficient Instructor/Staff coverage,
- Insufficient materials or components,
- Insufficient space for produced systems.
Partial shifts may be scheduled with the expectation that the scheduled timeframe is honored. Other volunteers may have committed to the remaining time in a shift and will be expected to begin their parts of the shift in a timely manner.
