For larger classes, we can also schedule blocks of trainings reserved for your students during our course reservable hours.

You can also schedule private makerspace access for your students during our course reservable hours. Please limit your reservation to two 3-hour blocks per semester, so that other courses can use the space. To reserve access hours, use our booking system here.

Redesigning or adding elements to your course always takes time, but the BeAM staff are here to support your work with makerspace course integration. One option is to start with a small project over a short time frame, rather than a larger semester-long project. Another option is to tie in your existing assignments into the design process, ensuring that your favorite assignments directly support your design/making project.
