The Maker’s Red Box

Superheroes – Digital Storytelling

Innovative STEAM-focused curriculum for kids and young adults

https://makersredbox.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/big_box-2.png

Developing soft and technical skills is essential for kids to become successful in the future. To achieve this goal, we have created this superhero-themed story-based curriculum ready to be used for teaching in makerspaces.

Participants create superheroes to express their feelings and experiences. By using storytelling methods, maker technologies and creative writing they express complex emotions in the form of objects. For this, children employ technologies such as 3D printing, laser cutting, electronics and microcontrollers or even sewing. After the participants created their very own heroes, they face interesting and fun challenges and delve into deep ethical and moral questions in their adventures.

We offer a perpetual license for each makerspace, but project pricing is also available. Contact us for details!
