Become a Maker in Residence

Maker in Residence Fall 2023 Application

Makers in Residence are undergraduate students who have an interest in building their creative and exploratory nature.  Students from all majors are welcome to becomes MiRs, although a majority of our MiRs have been education majors.  

During the semester, Makers in Residence spend 2 hours a week together in the studio.  During this time, you will explore different tools and complete group and individual projects.   These can range from green screen movies, macrame, 3D printing, laser cut sculptures, video games, and more! Each week, you will create with tools from your chosen pathway and create personal interest projects.  

In future semesters in the studio, you can begin to plan a project you can create to use in a classroom or a personal interest project. These projects are often presented at our annual Science Everywhere Festival.
