What is a “maker”?
A maker is someone who creates products by combining a variety of materials and sharing what they have learned with others. In the Chevron-Houston Texans Maker Annex, our workshops begin by introducing various engineering concepts. The topics in the workshops focus on everything from electricity to structural integrity. After an interactive lesson, visitors are challenged to create products based on a prompt, which encourages learning through self-exploration.
This 450-square foot space will provide unique education values, including:
Each workshop is designed to expose participants to a handful of tools and materials. It is our belief that safety and tool literacy go hand in hand. To provide a safe environment that can best teach the skills and habits needed to safely work with the tools in the Maker Annex, workshops are limited to ages 8 and up, with a parent or guardian.
