Minecraft Camp Overview

We don’t have to tell you how much kids love Minecraft! You may not be aware that Minecraft is a favorite among educators as well and can be used to teach many important 21st century skills. After-school programs and teachers using Minecraft as an educational tool found significant improvements in creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and computational thinking skills in their students.
This camp is accessible for all kids, whether they are brand new to Minecraft or have been playing for awhile. We will review basic game play and facilitate building challenges to help level up building skills. We will introduce campers to coding with the intuitive Minecraft Education Edition drag-and-drop platform.
Games are a highly effective platform for learning to code because kids relate to them. Minecraft in particular is ideal for teaching coding due to its popularity and because it is designed for open-ended play and storytelling. It’s a brilliant way for young children to explore their creativity through real computing!
IN THIS COURSE:
  • Learn to play Minecraft and improve building skills
  • Use drag-and drop coding platform to develop basic coding skills
  • Build a strong foundation in the fundamental coding concepts of algorithms, variables, and loops
  • Develop logical thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Small class sizes
  • Time for free-play in a private, instructor-monitored server
