Empowering teachers to help create a new generation of thinkers, creators and problem solvers
Transform K-8 Learning
At Makers Empire, we believe that teachers have a critical role to play in helping students realise their potential. We also believe teachers need high quality, purpose-built resources, professional development and ongoing support to perform at their best. And we’re proud and grateful to be able to help teachers develop a new generation of thinkers, creators and problem solvers.
With Makers Empire, your K-8 students will be designing in 3D in minutes. New users are instructed to begin with a series of bite-sized challenges of escalating difficulty designed to help them learn how to use the app and think creatively. Students’ efforts are rewarded with tokens and level ups that allow them to unlock new design items and competitions. Multiple login options, including QR code, make gaining access easy for even the youngest students. Plus, you control your students’ privacy settings and how their designs are shared ensuring responsible school management.
With Makers Empire, teachers learn how to fully harness the power of 3D design and printing to teach students design thinking, STEM concepts and 21st-century learning skills. Our innovative online professional development videos provide you with everything you need to become a confident and inspiring teacher of design thinking, 3D design and 3D printing.
Our complete 3D solutions include easy to use 3D software, high-quality teacher resources, professional development and training, and ongoing support; and can be bundled together with 3D printing hardware.
