Our new Biz-Kids course and MakeShop help teachers develop their students’ entrepreneurial spirit with fun challenges and real-world learning.
The benefits of an entrepreneurial mindset extend far beyond the business world. Entrepreneurs see problems as opportunities. They identify real needs and have the audacity to seek solutions. They test, they try and they fail, but they don’t give up.
This free course covers critical concepts such as:
Entrepreneurship requires a blend of skills. Makers Empire’s Biz-Kids course provides rich opportunities for meaningful cross-curricula learning with a fun, project based learning approach. Learning outcomes include:
Technologies – Design & Technologies
HASS – Economics & Business
Mathematics- Measurement and Geometry
It is free for schools to set up an online shop.
Parents, carers and other members of your school community can purchase professional quality 3D prints of students’ work; the price varies according to the size and choice of materials. Most prints range between $10 and $100 (AUD).
MakeShop makes it super easy for schools to access cutting edge 3D printing technologies, and for their students to truly ‘take a product to market’.
Here’s how it works:
It is very easy for teachers to set up their school’s MakeShop page. Teachers just upload approved designs to their shop, and we’ll do the rest.
The price of 3D prints available through MakeShop varies depending on the size of the print and the choice of material, anywhere from $10 to over $100 AUD.
As an approximate guide; a 3D print the size of a key chain in biodegradable plastic would cost about $10, while the same design in stainless steel would cost $30 – $50 AUD.
Much like school photos, excursions, school camps and other additional activities organised through school, we are sensitive to the reality that not all families will want to, or be able to participate.
The most important consideration is that all students are able to participate in learning through the Biz-Kids course and the many other learning opportunities that Makers Empire provides.
We have included a variety of material options, including the most economical “biodegradable plastic (PLA)” which allows families to enjoy seeing their child’s work produced and delivered in a professional package, at significantly less cost than a metal or full colour print.
MakeShop orders will be packaged and shipped to the school, and again like school photos etc. we trust that teachers have their own systems to distribute orders to their students in an appropriate manner.
Yes, MakeShop online transactions are powered by Stripe.
It is the same payment system we use for our own online shop.
