Karie had a class that was learning about the 13 colonies of America and saw the Global Design Program as an opportunity to engage the students more deeply in the subject. So she reached out to Kate and their two classes connected to learn about the histories of the first colonies together. Each student then designed a relic or artefact from the relevant time period using Makers Empire’s 3D design app. Learn more.

In September and October 2018, students from Stoner Prairie Elementary School in the USA partnered with students from St Michael’s College in Australia for a Global Design Program project about water and aquatic animals. Students loved sharing their Makers Empire 3D designs and culture with each other by creating short videos for their peers to watch. Using video to share their work was a great way to manage the difficult time difference between the two countries and keep students engaged. Learn more.
Research iconic buildings and structures from your own country. Then create a shortlist of landmarks and create designs of them using Makers Empire 3D software. Exchange them with students in another country to learn more about each other’s culture.
