Preparing for your first Makers Empire class – Installation Guide for Schools

So your school has just embarked on its Makers Empire journey? Congratulations! We’re excited to be supporting you and your teaching colleagues as you introduce your students to design thinking via 3D design and printing.

The Makers Empire School Subscription comprises 3D Software and curriculum-aligned lesson plans, professional development videos, teacher resources and more accessible via the Teacher’s Dashboard.

Before you run your first Makers Empire class, we suggest completing the following steps to ensure a smooth and successful experience.

1. Install Makers Empire 3D on Your Schools’ Devices

Makers Empire 3D works on most devices and is available to download on the App Store for iPad and iPhone, Google Play for Android, the Mac App Store for Mac and Windows. Newer Chromebooks (2016+) are supported – see details here.

If you have any issues installing Makers Empire 3D please refer to our Help Centre. If you’re still experiencing difficulties contact our support team by clicking on the message icon in the Teacher’s Dashboard (log in via the top menu) or via Instant Messaging on this site.

2. Add a Class

Login to the Teacher’s Dashboard via the login button on this website. You’ll need your login email and password to access the Dashboard.

In the Teachers’ Dashboard, click Classes on the left menu. Click +Add a class. Give your class a name, assign the grade / year level and click Create class. If you are teaching a specialist class you can click Additional, otherwise, leave Home selected.

* If your school is integrated with Google Classroom, your classes will automatically be synced with Makers Empire, so you can skip this step

.

3. Add students

Now you’ve added your first class, let’s add some students.

Remaining in the Teachers’ Dashboard, click Classes on the left menu. Select your class and then click +Add a student. You will be prompted to choose a Username, Password and Display name.

You can enter student’s email address if your students have access to email, otherwise select Use my email.

* If your school is integrated with Google Classroom, your classes will automatically be synced with Makers Empire, so you can skip this step. Alternatively, if your students have a sufficient literacy level, you can probably let them create accounts themselves. In that case, you can skip this step and go straight to Individual Login.

4. Log in with your class

Bonus: Health and Safety for Schools

3D printing and design offer elementary, primary and middle school educators countless learning opportunities for enhanced student performance, engagement and learning.

As with all new technologies used in a school environment, educators need to understand the technology from a health and safety point of view.

We’ve prepared a short article about health and safety for schools, which includes our recommendations regarding 3D printers and ventilation. We recommend you share this with the relevant leaders and teaching staff in your school.
