“…this has been a game-changer in the 3D design game for our students of all ages… With Makers Empire, students learn how to identify needs and opportunities and then create, prototype, test and refine designs of solutions using 3D printing,” Craig Kemp, Head of EdTech.

“I have worked with several design software but Makers Empire is the easiest to use… One of the best things students learned is that it is okay to not get the “right” answer the first time, or second time. Students know that “failing” is part of the design process and problem-solving, ” Casey Corn, STEM Teacher.

“The overall enthusiasm towards school and learning has increased tremendously. Students who are typically reluctant learners have come to life!” Robin McGinnis, STEM Leader.
