Welcome to 3D | Creative Kids NSW Voucher

Self-Paced School Holiday Fun

Makers Empire’s Welcome to 3D challenge is a great way to introduce NSW-based children to the basics of 3D design & printing at home. Plus, the $99 cost is fully covered by the Creative Kids NSW voucher! 

During this course, requiring minimal supervision, children will learn how to use Makers Empire and Design Thinking processes to design a bag tag, ice cream cone and their own name tag. As they design, children develop creative confidence and problem-solving skills, express ideas, improve spatial awareness and learn valuable tech skills.

Parents receive regular updates on their child’s progress, a parent guidebook with helpful tips and advice on helping your child excel, and one high-quality 3D print of their child’s name tag, posted to your home.

FREE with Creative Kids Voucher

NSW parents, guardians and carers can apply for a Creative Kids voucher with a value of up to $100 per calendar year for each school-enrolled child aged 4.5-18 years to undertake creative and cultural activities.
