Resources for Teachers
We’re committed to ensuring that teachers achieve powerful student learning with 3D printing so we’ve designed comprehensive resources to help.
After all, you shouldn’t have to be an expert to be able to use 3D printing and design as an authentic teaching tool in the classroom.
Our high quality teacher resources are designed to guide, support and inspire you throughout your entire 3D printing experience.
Whether you’re a K-8 classroom teacher, a STEM/STEAM Teacher, a Technology Teacher, a Technology Integration Specialist, a Visual Arts/Design Teacher or Design Thinking Teacher, you’ll find Makers Empire offers endless authentic learning opportunities to suit your specific teaching needs.
Moreover, Makers Empire is ideal for differentiated instruction and assessment as every child can learn and succeed to their own ability and at their own pace.

School Case Studies
Makers Empire regularly interviews teachers who are using Makers Empire in the classroom in interesting, inspiring and innovative ways. We then create case studies for our blog, where we share their experiences and lessons learned with our global teaching community. Reading about a colleague’s 3D printing journey is a great way to discover new ways to use 3D printing with Makers Empire to enhance student learning.
Makers Empire is leading the way in terms of complete 3D solutions for schools. We’ve worked with thousands of teachers and hundreds of thousands of students so we understand what works and what doesn’t. We strongly believe in sharing our expertise so we regularly update our blog with informative and useful posts about design thinking, growth mindsets, 21st century skills, encouraging STEM learning and pedagogy.
