About this event

Fall Semester (Sept - Dec) ======================= Learn to Code & Mod in Minecraft ------------------------------------------------- Minecraft is a huge sandbox and game playing platform. The landscape stretches infinitely in all directions. It extends up into the hills and mountains, and down into dark caverns filled with lava and treasure. Minecraft allows us to teach both designing and coding skills to learners. Programs such as Minecraft: Education Edition offers a more visual and less wordy way of learning to code as a beginner by using visual block coding. This involves individual blocks of pre-written code that can be dragged and dropped into the script, just like a puzzle piece. This allows students get to go beyond just playing Minecraft, they get to program it! They create mods in Minecraft by learning programming concepts and applying them to realize their ideas. Additionally, Minecraft allows for coding to be implemented immediately so you can see exactly what you are doing to the game in real-time. This is far more useful than other games, which you would have to continually close and reopen repeatedly every time you made a change just to see the results. Spring Semester (Jan - May) ========================= Coding and Robotic with LEGO It is great fun to Build your own Petting Zoo and bring it to life by adding motors, LEDs and batteries. We will be learning to Design and Code our robots in our Engineering & Robotics with LEGO ----------------------------------------------
