Maker's Red Box believe that maker pedagogy has the power to transform education and bridge the gap between education and the labour market. We started in 2015 as a small group of professionals with the common conviction that makerspaces are the key to the future of education. They are places where children gain relevant skills and find their strengths. Since then they have grown to a team of 16 engineers, teachers, maker educators, gamification experts, and innovators; all devoted to the mission of bringing maker education to as many kids as possible.
Kids are given an opportunity to imagine and design the city of the future they would like to live in. The city changes constantly as they get introduced to new technologies and learn to act as a team. The course introduces them to urban development concepts like governance and sustainability. They have to come up with solutions by creating a scaled down model with laser cutting, 3D printing and programmable microcontrollers. While building the city they are seeking answers for the challenges of the future they will soon experience. These boxes come with a lifetime license for each school or makerspace.
A research vessel sets off on an expedition around the world to understand global warming and how it affects climate. During the journey, the crew members wear many hats as they research, assess, design and build, discovering smart solutions and winning strategies for adapting to life in a changing climate. Their mission? To gain knowledge through exploring best practices in sustainability and passing it on to others – and laying the foundations of sustainable living. Global warning is a science-based, data-based, non-biased course material that storyfies and gamifies climate change to make it accessible for students of all interests and abilities.

A team of exceptional space engineers is formed to get to Mars and terraform the planet. The story evokes the inner explorer in children making every session just another adventure. Completing the mission is only possible if they create their own sustainable and efficient designs by employing their newly acquired tech skills.
Makers Red Box is a great way for students to learn and explore using different methods of teaching and technical skills including Creative Writing, Mathematics, 3D Printing, Soldering, Laser Cutting, Robotics, Coding, as well as soft skills such as Creative Problem Solving, Teamwork, Critical Thinking, Emotional Intelligence, Communication Skills, and Business Skills. All help the student grow into thriving and ambitious individuals.
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.
