Kidesign is an educational company specialising in designing creative curriculum materials for CAD and 3D printing projects to encourage student engagement in Design and STEM subjects. Kidesign enables learning through making and uses technology as a creative tool to reconnect the digital and physical worlds by teaching practical 21st century skills. Since 2010 Kidesign pioneered creative 3D printing workshops for children through which we have gathered invaluable research and experience. Thousands of boys and girls around the world who participated in Kidesign activities helped us develop a formula for an educational process that is collaborative, cross-disciplinary and fun. In 2015, we launched the first product for schools - Kideville, a city design project for children, with an innovative term-long 3D design curriculum developed for teachers and educators. Much like a game, each kid is assigned a creative mission, based on their interests, that takes them through a full design and project management process. The teacher curates this journey that includes research, ideation, sketching, CAD modelling, 3D printing and presenting. Kidesign inspires students to obtain the skills and knowledge in STEM and pursue careers in design, technology and engineering.
