Using a custom mod called “Computercraft”, students will learn how to program robots called “Turtles” inside the world of Minecraft. In this class, students will be introduced to LUA, a simple scripting language used to develop games such as Angry Birds, where they will learn how to programming if-then-else statements, for-while loops, and implement their own functions. 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.
