  • Camp Description

    Minecraft has taken the world over by surprise since it debuted in 2009. This camp combines the fun of Minecraft with teaching kids to code at the same time. Playing Minecraft is fun, but building, creating, and modifying your Minecraft agents and worlds through coding is a skill that can help our younger generation in any field they choose to pursue. Tell your Minecraft fan to get their Creepers and Magma Cubes ready for this camp!

    Teaching Platform

    Coding with Minecraft at theCoderSchool Built by Microsoft for the purpose of teaching kids to code, Minecraft Education Edition introduces students to its code editor where they can code and modify their Minecraft agents and worlds. Most of our Minecraft camps will utilize Microsoft's Education Edition or will mimic it with their own hosted worlds and server. The coding will be centered around Microsoft Education Edition's code editor to modify Minecraft agents. The coding can be done using the education edition's own drag n' drop language, or options such as Javascript, Python, or Tynker.

    Concepts Learned

    Campers will get a chance to explore, design, and code in Minecraft. The coding can be as creative as their minds can get from hatching chickens to building pyramids and almost anything else. The common theme will be that they will all require fundamental coding concepts such as loops, variables and functions. As the coding gets more creative, the concepts will get more complex as well.

    Skill Level

    Minecraft camp is aimed towards our beginner coders. Some coding and/or Minecraft experience is helpful but not required.
