Makers Empire’s Custom Solutions

Makers Empire’s offers customised professional learning programs for education departments, education boards, school districts, groups of schools, and education initiatives, tailored to suit individual needs and objectives. 

Our customised solutions are designed to help classroom teachers and school leaders integrate design thinking by using 3D printing and design as an everyday classroom tool. Through our professional learning programs, teachers learn how to use 3D and design to transform the way they teach students STEM/STEAM subjects and help them develop important design thinking and 21st century learning skills.

With multi-school programs, Makers Empire and its partners can deliver significant, systemic change and help equip K-8 students with the skills and attitudes they’ll need to not only survive but thrive in the future. We’ve worked with thousands of teachers and hundreds of thousands of students so we have the experience, the skills and the team to deliver a successful, customised learning program for you. 


In mid 2017, teachers from 49 primary schools across the state of South Australia undertook the Learning by Design course together in Australia’s biggest roll out of 3D printing in schools.

The project was so successful that in 2018, teachers from 100 primary schools in South Australia will undertake the Learning by Design course together in what will be Australia’s then largest rollout of 3D printing in schools.

“The DECD-Makers Empire partnership is an excellent example of businesses working with school communities to develop learning experiences that involve students in real world problem solving and challenges them to engage with the critical and creative thinking required to be the future innovators of South Australia,” says Linda Olifent – Director of Primary Learners, Learning Improvement Division, Department of Education and Child Development.


In 2016, Makers Empire partnered with New York State public schools and the New York Institute of Technology’s Technology on a successful pilot to introduce its 3D printing learning program to a dozen New York State schools.

“Prior to the pilot most of our schools were struggling to understand how to integrate 3D design and printing into cross curricula activities. The Makers Empire pilot has provided the beacon for schools to follow that are opening opportunities for students that simply were not on the table before the pilot.. We were impressed that they were addressing the use of 3D printing… as a true curriculum enabling tool. We simply had not found anyone else doing the work required to create quality educational activities. The team that they have assembled has the right mix of technologists and educators to create both a platform and a curriculum that will enhance innovation, creativity and technology in our schools,” says Professor Stan Silverman, Director of NYIT Technology Based Learning Systems.
