Learning in Schools

Makers Empire gives teachers the tools, skills and resources to confidently teach Design & Technology curricula and engage students in authentic, real-world problem solving.  Makers Empire 3D is the only 3D design app made for K-6 learners and is engaging and easy to use. In-app tutorials and challenges build students’ confidence and develop their Design Thinking skills. The Teachers Dashboard makes it easy for teachers to organise classes, manage students’ designs, assign and assess work and access curriculum-aligned lesson plans, certified professional development, and resources and training.

“I have worked with several design software but Makers Empire is the easiest to use… One of the best things students learned is that it is okay to not get the “right” answer the first time, or second time… Students have expanded their problem solving skills to think more outside of the box.”

“This was the best PD that I have been involved in for ages. Being able to work collaboratively to plan a unit of learning based around 3D printing was excellent… This whole project has been inspiring for teachers and students in empowering students to become change-makers. Our students were so engaged and excited about solving a real world problem.”

Makers Empire has been part of a number of Australian and American research studies, including a 12-month Macquarie University study into primary school makerspaces, which examined how maker activities could enhance learning and teaching outcomes. The studies revealed compelling results.

“Maker activities using 3D technology resulted in very high levels of student engagement, as well as increased levels of student confidence (particularly for less capable students)… students were observed to develop creativity, problem-solving skills, critical thinking, inquiry capabilities, design thinking skills, collaborative skills, autonomy, literacy, numeracy, scientific understanding, technological capabilities, communication skills, reflective learning capabilities and resilience,”

Makers Empire’s market-leading products have been recognised with certification from the Education Alliance Finland for pedagogical quality as well as numerous EdTech awards, partnerships, endorsements and expert recommendations. 

“Learning creative problem-solving and other transversal competencies are at the core of the Finnish education system… (so) it was great to see how Makers Empire sparks students’ creativity through hands-on learning experiences…  for teachers, it was surprisingly easy to start using the software thanks to its complete support materials for educators. We rarely see a solution that has this extensive teacher resources that also support the teacher’s professional development and knowledge of a novel topic.”
