UT Game Changers: The Longhorn Maker Movement

The Longhorn Maker Movement: Pioneering Students, Hands-On Tech.

Two color orange horizontal divider


Pioneering students, hands-on tech and the space to create and collaborate — that’s the foundation of the Longhorn Maker Movement. From traditional soldering and woodworking to advanced 3D printing and robotics, the “maker” activities available on campus are as varied as the students driving the Maker culture. The students are do-it-yourself, engineering-centric creative thinkers and problem solvers.

UT Austin has been a leader among universities when it comes to providing makerspace opportunities. These makerspaces inspire students, expand course engagement, provide hands-on learning opportunities and spur both innovation and entrepreneurship.

UT Game Changers brings The University of Texas at Austin’s intellectual talent beyond the classroom with a half-hour show to be broadcast on The Longhorn Network along with a Web-only version, above.
