Explore the world of 3D Games. Build, hack and code in Minecraft, designing a whole new game that you can call your very own! Learn how to write block-based code and deploy it to servers just like Notch did to create Minecraft.
Kids are empowered to get creative using texture packs, schematics and more. They get imaginative and creative with their programming skills to create their own version of Minecraft that they can have a blast playin’ with their friends!
Explore the world of 3D Games. Create the coolest worlds in Minecraft Education, designing a whole new game that you can call your very own! Learn how to write block based code and deploy it to Servers just like Notch did to create Minecraft.
Kids are empowered to create their own amazing Minecraft worlds, from texture packs, schematics and more. And as we code these new worlds together, we’ll be learning coding concepts through creative coding. By the end, kids get to play with their friends in their own Minecraft worlds!
Learn all about Minecraft Servers.
So you’ve played Minecraft on your own, with friends or on popular servers but do you ever wonder how these wonderful games you enjoy playing so much are made and distributed? In this course, you will not only learn how to build these games, but also host them on servers so your friends can join in and play the game you’ve coded.
We will start off by exploring aspects of game development and programming within a new environment, to practise and reinforce programming concepts learnt from our introductory courses.
We’ll apply the familiar concepts of loops, conditionals and events to create our games. We will also develop your understanding of what happens when games are deployed on servers for other people to access them. A brief history of Minecraft will also explored, through educational games and quizzes.
Now, get creative with Minecraft!
Minecraft provides an immersive 3D environment for kids to develop their programming and game development skills.
Kids can use code to change the way the game behaves and responds. They will learn how to create their own world, build games within a game and even have a go at playing what they created with their friends in Minecraft!
They’ll build their own Minecraft worlds using a drag-and-drop block-based code editor. In the process, kids will improve their understanding of core programming and computational thinking concepts, and use their creativity and imagination to make their very own world to play in.
Oh! The stuff you'll learn
Minecraft and a Scratch-like block-based code editor
Learn about methods
Use game design principles to make the game more fun and exciting
Add timers and health
Increase complexity with Conditions and Variables
Going further with Boolean and Loops
Test and debug using logic and systematic reasoning
Connect your world and play in Minecraft
Life skills you'll learn
No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
"S always comes away learning something new and having fun at the same time. The lessons and curiosity stay with her as she continues to code even after the camps have ended. Kudos for making coding fun!"
"G enjoyed the lesson so much that he told me 3 hrs felt like only 1 hr had passed."
"My son enjoyed it very much and also learnt a lot. The instructor was friendly and approachable. The presentation on the last day was very useful for parents to know what the course was about."

Your kid will love it.
If your kid doesn't think it's the best thing ever after attending the first 2 days of holiday camps (or first 3 weeks of term classes), and would like to withdraw, we'll issue you a 50% credit note of the amount paid.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. My child is new to computers and programming. Will he / she be able to follow?
We recommend that your child completes Start with Scratch or Coding the Impossible 0 for a solid foundation in Scratch and programming concepts first, and is familiar with Minecraft before enrolling in this course.
2. Does my child need to have a Minecraft account in advance?
No, during the days of the course, we will be providing your child with access to Minecraft Education.
3. I’ve enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?
We’ll provide all equipment and materials, but you may want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case he/she gets hungry.
