Requirement: Experienced with MinecraftTM and interested in programming.
Did you know that Minecraft was built using Java code? Get a head start in life by developing
invaluable coding skills with Minecraft. Our class will teach you to use Java code to control your own Minecraft server, build mods and design your own “games within the game”. Coders become digital creators with real world skills and are challenged to progress from drag-and-drop to text based programming, gradually stripping away the graphical support in phases to reveal and use the raw code underneath, using a trial-and-error approach. Our unique code editor allows students to learn at their own pace while participating in a group setting. There are no limits to this program, kids just keep inventing and learning! They can share their mods with their friends in and out of class!
Students are grouped by grade and experience level.
All students ARE REQUIRED to have their own Minecraft™ account for this class. Purchase a standard account and desktop version of Minecraft™ ($26.95) at https://minecraft.net/store. On the first day, students must bring their login credentials for Minecraft to ensure a streamlined learning experience.
