In The Classroom

We work extensively with professors to augment learning in their courses.

MakerHub is Baruch College’s resident makerspace for technology, design, and entrepreneurship. If you didn’t know we existed, now you do!

 

The MakerHub team brings hands-on access to advanced technologies into the classroom to augment student learning. We have worked with faculty and students from sciences, arts, communications, management, entrepreneurship, law, and public affairs and are always seeking opportunities to partner with new faculty.

Our programming is designed to be flexible so it can suit various disciplines, learning goals, and teaching modalities. We are happy to work with you to come up with an assignment or project design that makes use of these lessons to support your teaching and your student’s learning.

 

Want to incorporate MakerHub into your course? Contact us at makerhub@baruch.cuny.edu to get started. Our faculty advisors look forward to helping you and your students learn, make, and play with technology.

Faculty Feedback

Professor Suzanne Dell’Orto: Fine and Performing Arts

“One of the best things about working with MakerHub in my class is that students get to work with MakerHub as an “outside vendor” where, after sending out their files, they have limited control over the result. They learn a new skill (3D modeling with Tinkercad), and work in groups, and then get to see what happens to an idea when it gets sent out for fabrication."
