We Open Schools for Business
Empowering students to design, create and be entrepreneurs!
“My after-school STEM club has gained interest to where students had to be put on a waiting list. Students have discussed participating in STEM clubs in middle school and high school as well as more interest in engineering type careers,”
Casey Corn, STEM Teacher
Chesnee Elementary School, South Carolina, USA
“This has been a wonderful new way to teach and motivate my students. They are so eager and excited to learn in this new way!... They are beginning to see real-life implications to what they learning to do in class and how they could develop prototypes of objects that they could develop and then produce to sell.”
Robin McGinnis, Teacher
North Elementary School, Ohio, USA
“…a great tool for many of my students that find other CAD software difficult. Some students have difficulty visualizing in a 3D workspace; 3D modelling is great practice to build spatial sense... This is linked to a skill in our math curriculum, so it's great to give a real world application for students to practice.”
Jeff Henigar, Teacher
BLT Senior Elementary School, Nova Scotia, Canada
"The engagement and wonder about what students can create. We are just getting started with 3D Design and Printing. Students have been using the design thinking process for the past two years with me in STEM however this unlocks a great deal more possibilities!"

"Without a doubt, the most exciting aspect of the GE AEP program so far has been the HUGE, super proud smiles that light up our students' faces when they see their designs and concepts come to life. The Makers Empire software is highly engaging and very functional and user-friendly - students from K to 6 are loving it! 3D Design & Printing lessons during STEM sessions has become every student's favourite part of the school week!"
Lauren Purcell, teacher
Cringila Public School, New South Wales, Australia
"The most exciting part of the GE AEP program so far is seeing the student's faces when their designs are printed. The majority of the students have never seen anything like this, so they are extremely excited when we print their creations."
