Programming using Minecraft (1-2)

Ages 6 - 9 Grades 1 - 3

Using a custom mod called “Computercraft”, students will learn how to program robots called “Turtles” inside the world of Minecraft. Kids will utilize problem-solving skills by learning how to program their robots to complete various tasks and objectives such as programming their turtles to automatically build, mine, and craft items and structures. They will be introduced to programming if-then-else statements, for-while loops, and implement their own functions using Lua, a simple scripting language. Looking for a fun way to introduce your child to programming? Why not do it using a game they love!

Note: Basic reading skills required. Experience playing Minecraft preferred, but not required. Please email us for details.
