Makers Empire will run four group projects a year, corresponding with the Australian school terms. Each term will be focused on a particular challenge course:
How we can use the world’s resources in more sustainable ways in our everyday lives? Students will learn about ways to help reduce waste by reusing and recycling. This course aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goals: #11 Sustainable Cities and Communities and #12 Responsible Consumption and Production.
How can we can help protect the many aquatic species that live in our oceans? Students will develop an understanding of animal habitats and ecosystems and learn about the impact that pollution and plastics have upon these. This challenge course aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal: #14 Life Below Water.
How can we can design products that help others? Students will learn about social enterprise and use Makers Empire to design a product that can be sold to support those in need. This challenge course aligns with multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals as well as any additional goals that students’ specific projects align to.
How can we prepare for and respond to problems caused by natural disasters such as bushfire, earthquake, floods and volcanoes? Students will develop an understanding about different types of natural disasters and create designs to help. This course aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal: #13 Climate Action.
