Makers Empire Buddy Course

Makers Empire would love to partner with you to build your school’s Design & Technologies (Engineering Design) capacity and empower your colleagues while developing your students’ design thinking skills and building their creative confidence.

For teachers who are new to Makers Empire, the Buddy Course helps you quickly gain some new skills so you can confidently utilise Makers Empire’s fun and easy 3D program with your class.

For our experienced ‘champion’ teachers, this is a great co-learning opportunity and we hope you’ll find Makers Empire even more fun with your buddies onboard!

This program is free for schools with an existing Makers Empire subscription.

All you need to run this program is:

  • 1 hour for a practical training session (ideally towards the beginning of a school term, but any time can work)
  • 3-4 lessons to complete an introductory 3D design project with your students
  • 1 or more buddies (colleagues) who are interested in working with you to learn how fun and easy it is to effectively use Makers Empire in their classes
  • 3D printer is optional
  • A little resilience
Participating teachers will receive a certificate and training can be counted towards PD requirements.
