Generally, we allow minors in our space, but we need the parents
approval. But also we say to parents, that we don't take any
responsibilty if the minor hurts himself. (After we explained the
possible dangers). We didn't have many minors. Also the parents were
present all the time.

The "Chaos Computer Club Lëtzebuerg A.S.B.L.", which provides the
ChaosStuff hackerspace, has actually 3 different membership plans.

First of all, the standard membership for people who have a regular
income, which is fixed at 50€ per year.

Secondly, we have a student membership for pupils & students for

And lastly we have a "starving hacker" clause, for which a person can
apply, if he can't afford the membership, but this needs to be approved
by the administrative council.
