UNC-Chapel Hill is an institution of innovative learning, where educators continually pioneer creative ideas for new curriculum. BeAM is here to help, supporting faculty and instructors who want to integrate the makerspaces into their courses.

“The biggest success and most pleasant surprise was the degree to which students’ imaginations were captured in class for the subject material as a consequence of the project”

The makerspaces have been integrated into classes from a variety of disciplines, including Art History, Biology, Chemistry, Education, English, Geography, Geology, Physics, Psychology, Women & Gender Studies, and many more.
