The Makerspace at West Houston Institute

We Are All Makers!

IDEAStudio is the makerspace at Houston Community College's West Houston Institute. We support the mission of the WHI by providing a place for everyone to explore, imagine, and create using the latest technologies such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC machines alongside traditional tools like drills, saws, and welders to take ideas from concept to reality.

"IDEAS" stands for Innovation, Design & Entrepreneurship integrated into the Arts & Sciences. To help you develop the mindsets and skillsets we believe are essential for your success today, we offer a range of programs including membership and training for students, faculty, and staff; courses in design and making techniques; support for instructional and community projects; and speakers and events for learning and networking.
