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 Minecraft themed games and unplugged activities.
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!
