MakerSpace

Education in the 21st Century seeks to nurture team spirit, creativity and communication skills, as well as a sense of responsibility among students – all to help them develop into modern citizens able to compete in a challenging world.

A new way of learning concentrates on aspects such as collaboration, exploration, experience and application, calling for a focus on technology and imparting wide-ranging knowledge.

Studies have proved that the very environment in which we educate young people has a direct bearing on the results of an instutition’s teaching efforts. MakerSpace from HKT education (HKTE) is based on a modern classroom-design concept that promotes collaboration, learning, exploring and sharing.

One-stop solutions

HKTE is well known for promoting eLearning, STEM education and other one-stop solutions that include training for teachers and supplying school equipment.

Our skilled team seeks to create an innovative and interactive environment and does so via an onsite presence in order to discuss how our MakerSpace approach can better serve a school.
