WHAT TEACHERS SAY
“…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.
“We’ve had a 3D printer and stuff going on four or five years now (but) the students didn’t really create (anything) original... But with Makers Empire, each student had all of these different unique creations... Makers Empire is a game changer... There’s a lot of software out there but Makers Empire has incorporated so many different features… no one else has," Karie Huttner, K-5 Educational Technology Coach.
“The overall enthusiasm towards school and learning has increased tremendously. Students who are typically reluctant learners have come to life!” Robin McGinnis, STEM Leader.

Ratings and Reviews
The best for elementary school
I’ve tried them all out and this is hands down the best 3D printing app for elementary school kids... easy to use, fun and engaging contests, game like atmosphere! Kids can create from day 1 with very little teacher support.
I love this app but...
When I opened the app like I normally do (I don’t do this for school) I was unable to log in. Wondering if it was just my account I made a new one but I was unable to make a new account. This my just be my iPad or the server was down when I tried to log on but I think it’s important to bring attention to this
Fun and simple!
As an educator and a techy sort of person, I believe this is a great app for teaching kids about the fun -and frustration- of 3D art! It's not hard, but it is a lot of fun, with a good reward system to keep kids -and me- making!
