Makers Empire and The History Trust of South Australia are presenting a two-day exhibition, The Curious Past, at the end of May to show how school students are using design thinking and 3D printing to study history.

SA company Makers Empire has worked with schools all around SA to create this impressive history showcase. Students from Murray Bridge North Primary School, West Beach Primary School and Coorara Primary School have been using 3D technology and Makers Empire to explore projects on subjects such as the Aboriginal history of the Murray River and Australia’s migration history.

At The Curious Past exhibition, you will discover how school students have used design thinking and 3D printing to unlock the curious secrets of the past.

Simply explore what’s on show, or put your own creativity to the test and use available found and recycled objects to make your own contribution.
