Minecraft isn’t just for gamers – it’s for explorers, designers, and builders, too! Students will explore the basics of art, architecture, animation, and the patented Redstone circuitry on Minecraft’s Education Edition platform. They will build their own Minecraft world, collaborate on a friend’s world, build logic gates and redstone contraptions, design animated pixel art using advanced commands, and take home digital files so that they can keep exploring their world after the program has ended. They’ll also gain an understanding of how one of the most popular platforms in the world works.
Technology: Minecraft Education Edition
Prerequisites: None

Students will expand their mod skills by creating characters like swamp-dwelling sludge monsters or sky-roaring dragons, then using Java code, will customize their mods even further, creating radioactive jetpacks or superhero power granting foods. Students will examine how their new designs — saved in their own Minecraft world — influence gameplay. This program is perfect for anyone who loves Minecraft and wants to have even more control over what they can build.
