Design Thinking with 3D Design and 3D Printing

School districts are looking to make the most of their existing technology, whether it is computers, 3D printers, or makerspaces.

Many districts that we work with already have the technology in place, but are lacking the teacher training and confidence, and missing the framework to maximize what they have. 

The Makers Empire program transforms STEM learning by developing students’ real-world problem-solving skills as well as critical thinking and resilience. The Makers Empire program includes:

  • Specialized professional development training for teachers
  • Strategies to help teachers integrate technology into the curriculum
  • Software and tools to develop STEM programs through 3D design
  • Opportunities to collaborate with students around the world
  • Success in increasing girl’s participation in STEM

Secure Safety and Privacy for Students

Makers Empire complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) , the CAN-SPAM Act and Makers Empire’s Privacy Policy. 

Schools can choose privacy settings for their students. Student designs (including the username of the designer) and comments can be shared:

  • only within a class;
  • only with designers within a school;
  • only with designers from other schools; and
  • publicly i.e. with the whole community via the Makers Empire Gallery;

Users can choose to make their specific designs public or private within the app by choosing ‘showing’ or ‘hidden’ when publishing their design.

Students are also asked to agree to the Maker Promise when using the app, which reminds them to be respectful and positive. It makes it clear that violent designs, bad language or bullying are unacceptable.
