Hands-on learning

Maker’s Red Box curriculums are based on constructionist pedagogy. Children cooperate to build functioning smart objects to learn about the world and experience basic scientific principles.

21st century skills

Active learning with our complex STEAM curriculums develops essential soft and hard skills and supports career orientation. Children can find their strengths and forge their own path.

Maker's Red Box methodology

Storytelling is at the heart of Maker’s Red Box curriculums. Children become involved in an interesting story with twists and turns. They become storytellers themselves who can influence how things will turn out.

In order to find ways to solve carefully constructed scientific problems, they have to research topics of literature, arts and history. Every child has their part in solving these challenges. They can assume different but equally important roles and contribute to the mission’s success.

With this approach children are constantly motivated, they support each other in individual tasks and learn from each other.

This way teachers can focus on the most important part of their job: teaching children. They don’t have to make up motivating tasks spanning different subjects again and again. They can find all that in the Maker’s Red Box.

What is maker education?

It’s a new method of teaching that enables kids to learn by tackling real-world problems, making and presenting their own creations, often in collaboration with others. Story-driven teaching techniques and gamification help them get immersed in their work while learning indispensable soft and technical skills. It all happens in a safe and inviting workshop environment called a makerspace where teachers and students can create value together in a shared space.

What is a makerspace?

Currently, there are more than 5000 makerspaces around the world that cater to makers of varying skills and ages from diverse backgrounds. Some of these are incorporated into schools, libraries or museums. What they all share is a sense of community, openness and inclusiveness as they strive to make modern technologies accessible for everyone and empower people to take up an active role and build their own objects.
