“This has been a wonderful new way to teach and motivate my students… They are beginning to see real-life implications to what they learning to do in class and how they could develop prototypes of objects that they could develop and then produce to sell…The overall enthusiasm towards school and learning has increased tremendously… typically reluctant learners have come to life!”

Make learning so fun students continue learning themselves

28,000+ educators are using Makers Empire as an everyday teaching tool to improve student understanding, engagement and performance and to teach subjects across the entire curriculum. Whether learning takes place in the classroom or at home, students love learning with Makers Empire. Our teachers tell us that students enjoy using Makers Empire so much that they continue ‘playing’ it in their own time. 

“The software is easy to use and kid-friendly… The curriculum has been great and it even fits into the objectives that I am currently teaching… When we first started using the curriculum I thought it was going to be a huge task getting my students to learn this. But instead of teaching, I have become a facilitator. They have really taken off and are helping each other solve problems. When we end our day I may about 20 designs that were created, but when we start the next day I see that number increase to about 50. They are designing at home.”

Deliver differentiated learning to meet students' individual needs

Makers Empire engages all students, including reluctant learners, students with special needs, gifted students, students that require more support, quick learners and students with disabilities, so every student  can succeed and learn at their own pace and skill level. Makers Empire allows for truly differentiated learning as each design task can be expanded or scaffolded to suit individual needs. Students feel empowered by Makers Empire and this encourages a love of STEM.

“… it was great to see how Makers Empire sparks students’ creativity through hands-on learning experiences…  for teachers, it was surprisingly easy to start using the software thanks to its complete support materials for educators. We rarely see a solution that has this extensive teacher resources that also support the teacher’s professional development and knowledge of a novel topic.”
