What is Makers Empire 3D?

Makers Empire 3D is the world’s easiest to use — and most fun! — 3D design program. Makers Empire 3D rewards kids’ natural urge to create whilst also teaching them valuable Design Thinking skills used to identify and solve real-world problems.

Makers Empire 3D works on all devices and can be used by students as young as 4 years old.

“I have worked with several (different) 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 know that “failing” is part of the design process and problem-solving,”
Casey Corn, STEM Teacher
Chesnee Elementary School, South Carolina, USA

Support learning at home

Makers Empire school users have access to special features and content that are not available on free accounts. School users can also share their creations with their teacher and classmates, get feedback from their teacher, and complete design and technology curriculum.

If your child already uses Makers Empire at school, they can use their same user account at home and school to get the best experience – and it is still FREE for you. If they forget their login details. simply ask their teacher for help.

“They have really taken off and are helping each other solve problems. When we end our day I may (see) about 20 designs that were created, but when we start the next day I see that number increase to about 50. They are even designing at home,”
Irene Barry-Philord, Teacher
Eneida M. Hartner Elementary, Florida, USA

“This has been a wonderful new way to teach and motivate my students… Students who are typically reluctant learners have come to life. One student was chronically absent and has now improved his attendance. He asks me each morning if he can get on the computer!”
