MAKER PROGRAM

Home » Maker Program

PACE OFFERS THE MAKER PROGRAM TO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH THE SKILLS AND TOOLS TO DEVELOP THEIR FIRST PROTOTYPE AT THE WALTER DODS, JR. RISE CENTER.

The Maker program, recording studio, and soon-t0-be maker spaces are managed by a group of dedicated UH students. Each Maker activity provides a chance to acquire a new, tangible skill. Within the maker spaces and recording studio, users not only engage in collaborative learning but also immerse themselves in a dynamic environment where hands-on creativity is cultivated. Events are free and open to all UH System students. Prior experience is not required.
