Recent research has highlighted the important role that spatial reasoning skills contribute to future success in STEM learning, and STEM based careers.
Makers Empire is a 3D Learning program specifically designed for Elementary and Middle School students.
Makers Empire is proven to help improve students’ spatial reasoning skills. A research study conducted by the University of South Australia also shows that the program helps reduce STEM anxiety and helps close the gender gap in STEM learning.

Makers Empire provides primary, elementary and middle school teachers with the tools, skills and resources to improve STEM learning outcomes for students, confidently teach Design & Technology curricula and engage students in authentic, real-world problem solving. In-app tutorials, daily challenges and curriculum-aligned challenge courses build students’ creative confidence and develop their Design Thinking skills.
In this session we will unpack what spatial reasoning is, how we can embed spatial reasoning experiences into STEM learning and test out our own spatial reasoning skills with strategies that can easily be adapted to the classroom.
