Why schools should teach Design Thinking



TEACH STUDENTS HOW TO SOLVE REAL-WORLD PROBLEMS

With Makers Empire, students learn how to identify real-world needs and opportunities and then create, prototype, test and refine designs of solutions using 3D printing and designs.

“Our students were so engaged and excited about solving a real-world problem… The fact that they could see they could help someone through their own design meant their learning was authentic and valued,”

Encourage a Love of STEM By Making it Fun & Meaningful

Solving real-world STEM problems with 3D technology encourages a love of STEM in younger students, which provides a pathway to future STEM study and a career in a STEM field.

“Through (Makers Empire), my after-school STEM club has gained interest to where students had to be put on a waiting list. Students have discussed participating in STEM clubs in middle school and high school as well as more interest in engineering type careers,”

TRANSFORMING LEARNING FOR 400,000+ STUDENTS WORLDWIDE




ENGAGE ALL STUDENTS, EVEN RELUCTANT LEARNERS

Teachers love the differentiated learning model of Makers Empire as it lets each student individualise their experience, go deeper in their learning and achieve success.

“The overall enthusiasm towards school and learning has increased tremendously. Students who are typically reluctant learners have come to life. One student was chronically absent and has now improved his attendance. He asks me each morning if he can get on the computer!”
Robin McGinnis, STEM Leader

BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF DESIGN THINKING IN SCHOOLS

Makers Empire’s pioneering products have been recognised with prestigious awards, research and teaching partnerships and endorsement from distinguished educators, specialist teachers, technology specialists and education reporters.

“It’s a challenge to find a tool that can engage students as they learn difficult concepts, but with lessons on spatial reasoning, engineering, literature, and ancient civilizations, Makers Empire provides a platform that teachers can use to promote content knowledge, technical skills, soft skills, and prepare students for challenges in and out of school,”
