How to Set Up a Gamestar Mechanic Class as a Teacher

If you’re a teacher, you can create your own class in Gamestar Mechanic. You must be a professional instructor in a nonprofit school or registered charitable organization, or an instructor in a home-school setting. Check here to view information about the requirements of Gamestar Mechanic teachers.

To set up your class, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Teachers Get Started Page on Gamestar Mechanic.

    This page appears on the Get Started tab of the Teachers page.


  2. Click the green button for the type of class you want to create. Here are your options:

    • Purchase Now: Lets you create a paid class and purchase Premium packs for your students at $2 each. You must purchase a minimum of ten packages.

      When you approve the membership of a student who wants to gain Premium privileges by joining your class, you assign that person a Premium pack. These packages cannot be removed or reused, because they grant permanent bonuses to students’ accounts. And as long as at least one student has a Premium pack, the teachers in that class have a Premium pack as well.

    • Try It Now: Gives you an Educator account and three Premium packs. The class and premium content cost nothing, but they expire after 30 days.

    • Use the Free Edition: An easy-to-use option that creates a free class with no Premium packs; students enter the class with whatever sprites they’ve earned or bought. If you’re hosting a class with only free-level students, or if your students have already bought the Premium pack themselves, this option is the best one.

    After you make your selection, a setup form appears on the page.

  3. Fill in the requested information to set up a Teacher account and provide information about your school.


  4. Select the check box to indicate that you’re over 18 and that you agree to the Gamestar Mechanic licensing agreement and terms of service.

  5. Click the Validate User and Create Your Class button.

    Gamestar Mechanic will send you an e-mail confirming your registration.

If you return to the Get Started page after creating a class, a different page opens, in which you can purchase additional Premium packs for your class.
