Minecraft Programs

In our Minecraft programs, kids learn how to make Minecraft even more awesome, how computers and servers work, and core computer programming concepts while collaborating with kids equally excited about Minecraft.

We use the incredibly popular game Minecraft (now a mandatory school subject in parts of Europe) as a medium to help kids build transferable skills such as coding, electronics, 3D design, servers, and more. We leverage kids’ interest in Minecraft as a gateway to introduce them to other STEM topics such as Robotics and Coding. Minecraft is also a great medium for teaching positive netizen skills and communication skills. Kids build amazing digital creations.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Patience, Communication, Teamwork, Problem-Solving, Coding, 3D Design

Kids can start into a level at anytime. They will advance to the next level once they have finished all the activities in their current level.

In our Mini Makers Minecraft program, kids gain invaluable computer experience while also being introduced to more advanced concepts such as remote servers and running commands. Most importantly of course they’ll be communicating and collaborating with a team of other kids equally excited about Minecraft learning how to be a good netizen while making friends and having fun.

Advanced Minecraft: Resources and Mods

Minecraft is a fun game to play, and this means it is even more fun to hack. Thanks to open source tools that allow us to access the underlying game resources, there is no limit on changes you can make to the appearance, shape, or logic of things in the game. Adding to and editing a game’s files requires an understanding of all the different parts and how they fit together, and this knowledge applies to all types of programs.

Grades 3-5 & 6-8

Prior Minecraft Java edition experience required.
