The Makerspace at West Houston Institute

Instructional Projects

Infuse Making Into Your Courses & Programs!

Instructional leaders and faculty members can request to work with the West Houston Institute's IDEAStudio to integrate maker activities, such as project-based learning, into their programs and courses. We will work with you to develop a unique approach that supports your goals and may include:

  • Creating teaching resources to be used as part of instruction
  • Developing a project to be designed and produced in the makerspace
  • Introducing your faculty, staff, or students to the use of digital design software
  • Training your faculty, staff, or students to work in the makerspace

Make a Request

To learn more, reach out to Jordan Carswell, West Houston Institute Director. Include the course or program area as well as any relevant information you can provide at this time to describe your goals.
