Step By Step Instructions
1. Students login to the Makers Empire App
Students should log in to their Makers Empire account, using their username and password, Google Classroom login, Schoology login or QR code login.
If your students are logging in for the first time, check out this handy guide to help them get set up.
2. Navigate to the 3D World
When students log into the Makers Empire app they will be directed to the ‘Training Lab’ in the Challenges tab. This is the area that has Tutorials and Challenges for students to complete to help them learn how to use the Makers Empire app.
In order to navigate to the 3D World students must have completed the first 5 challenges. Once they have completed those first 5 challenges they will be able to click on the World icon and enter the 3D world.
3. Enter the Competition Arena
Once inside the 3D World students need to enter the Competition Arena.
4. Watch the help video and then click Enter
The Competition Arena is where you will find the GE AEP competition information. Students can read the design challenge and watch a help video to get inspired about creating a 3D maze.
When the student is ready they just need to click Enter and will be taken to the Blocker design module where they can create their maze.
5. Submit a design into the competition!
When a student has finished a design, they just need to click the ‘Enter’ button at the bottom of the screen.
Then they will be taken to a page where they should give their design a title and write a sentence or two about why their design should win. It is not necessary to enter an email address, but students do need to select an age range and check the box to agree to the terms and conditions.
Once they have done that, and clicked Finish the design will be automatically entered into the competition. Hooray!
Next, update the name and description for your design and finally add the tag mazecomp2018.
