Introducing Makerspace technology to students in years 1-6 is a great way to get them thinking about scientific methods and design processes whilst sparking their interest and enthusiasm. Makerspace technology can help younger students improve their hand to eye coordination and spatial awareness, ignite their curiosity for experimentation and increase their self-confidence. Our introduction level materials are safe and easy to use, and we offer additional curriculum support to keep them engaged and inspired.

Our state-of-the-art makerspace technology, together with our Makers Red Box curriculum support materials, offer secondary students the opportunity to take their education to the next level through the development of highly desired 21st-century skills. Aimed at both STEM and arts subject specialists, these materials help teachers create and deliver engaging learning experiences so that students of all abilities can find their strengths and realise their potential. Students’ creativity is put to the test when they are asked to design solutions to real-world challenges and are often asked to research and write about their creations.

Makerspaces are becoming increasingly popular across university campuses and for good reason – they foster innovation, creativity, and collaboration across multiple disciplines. The hands-on education that a makerspace offers transforms the way students think and encourages an entrepreneurial mindset. Increasing numbers of universities are now adopting this cutting-edge approach into their curricula, not just in the sciences and engineering, but in humanities, social sciences, and the arts where team-projects and creative work benefit from the makerspace technology. Students not only develop real world, industry, ready skills; they are provided with a platform for world leading research and development.

3D printing is multi-disciplinary; offering study and research prospects in design for 3D manufacture, material development for print and application specifics, production management for AM (Additive Manufacturing) and many, many other areas making it an exciting and fertile academic arena. Designed to allow access, reconfiguration, and even fundamental redesign, open source 3D printers enable students and researchers to work from a known, stable base. External design and software packages easily interface to the printers ‘low level’ firmware so that boundaries can be pushed in all and any direction.

| Laser Cutters in School

Using laser cutters can teach students how to take an idea, to a design, then to manufacture. They can become experienced in using design software and watch as different materials can be transformed into pieces of art and sculpture. There are many online resources that include tons of great ideas for the use of a laser cutter to support the school curriculum and community.

With concerns to safety, the Flux machines are fully enclosed, and they automatically pause if the lid is opened during a task. If an emergency occurs, you can shut down the machine immediately with a single switch. And with the Beam Air or a suitable hose, fumes should not be a problem for little lungs.
