Makers Empire School Subscription

Makers Empire’s integrated approach to 3D design and printing offers K-8 teachers unique opportunities for hands-on, project-based, STEAM-themed teaching and learning. Learning by creating and making is an excellent way for students to develop design thinking skills and a growth mind set, as well as essential 21st century learning skills like collaboration, critical thinking and communication.

Makers Empire is engaging for all students as it allows for differentiated learning so students can work at varying levels of difficulty based on their individual ability. As they learn by trial and error, students develop a growth mindset, resilience and confidence in their own abilities.
