Turn your child's love of playing Minecraft into real-world coding skills with this fun online Minecraft programming class full of exciting challenges and projects. Students will learn how to make a Minecraft mod, and how to program games, stories, buildings, and anything else they want to make happen, and see it come alive in the Minecraft game.
Coding in this live online class is done through a drag-and-drop interface similar to Scratch. But we teach much deeper computer programming skills commonly used in advanced text-based programing languages. This course is a great next step for kids who have mastered Scratch and would like to continue to learn more advanced coding. All of our online classes are led by instructors who are passionate about teaching kids' coding, with no more than a handful of students per group. Join us to experience the fascinating world of coding Minecraft for kids!
In this free Minecraft class, we introduce students to the platform for coding on Minecraft. It is easy to use and very powerful. They will also start building their very first mod! We will complete two fun challenges in this class. This is an advanced coding class for grades 4-6. In this free intro class, we will not code on Minecraft itself but will use an emulator instead, because it takes a lot of time to enable coding for Minecraft. However, in Class Parts 1 - 3, the code will run on Minecraft software. Sign up today to start learning Minecraft coding.
In this exciting Minecraft coding class, students will have a great time learning to create and mod for their favorite game - Minecraft! Their code will spawn their favorite creatures, build cool structures, and create games to challenge others. Students will master important programming concepts such as functions, loops, variables, just to name a few, taking a big step forward toward developing their computer science skills.
In Part 2 of this Minecraft coding course for kids, we will cover more advanced coding concepts such as functions with inputs and outputs, array, string, and more. Students will also learn more advanced modding techniques in Minecraft, and build both single-player and multi-play games. We encourage students to apply their own creativity and build projects that reflect their own passion using the core computer science knowledge they'll gain.
In Part 3 of this Minecraft coding class, we cover the most advanced coding concepts that the platform has to offer, such as objects and libraries. We will also practice the techniques of learning coding by reading other people's programs and documentation. The projects we build will be far more complex. It is capped with a Fortnite-like game!
