What is a Makerspace?

A makerspace is a place where ideas can become a reality by offering the latest in manufacturing and prototyping technology in a hands-on environment to allow Texas State University students, teachers, and staff to create or prototype whatever comes to mind.

The Ingram Hall Makerspace (IHM) specifically is an Academic Makerspace, which means we focus on the academic benefit to student-operated equipment. Our equipment has training modules, many have public workshops, and we even have events to help support students with zero knowledge of any equipment. The IHM aims to make students innovative thinkers and creative makers.
