FAQ for Instructors

What’s the teaching schedule like?

Classes can vary from a one-time 90-min or 2-hr workshop to multi-class series that could add up to about 20 class hours, depending on the subject matter, target audience, and instructor preferences.

What class levels are offered?

Our target audience is a wide range that includes high school students, maker-types, artists, and professionals, so the skill levels will vary accordingly.

What is the expected instructor commitment?

Instructors tell us their preferred level of commitment. We can work with someone who wants to teach a single workshop repeated a few times a year, as well as someone who wants to teach multiple classes, as long as we can work out a list of classes that can attract an audience.

What hardware and software are available at the facility?  

We have a wide range of equipment available for classes, workshops, hackathons, and other formats. Please check our Facility Use page for details.
