Children can then choose to print their designs (if you have a 3D printer) or order prints of their designs. Let’s get started.

STEP FOUR: Teach Students How to Create Their Own Mazes
Begin your class by asking your students by repeating your above steps. Have them create their own accounts in Makers Empire 3D and then do the first five challenges.
You could easily spend 30-45 minutes on this part of the lesson.
Next, show students how to design an awesome maze design to impress their family and friends.
