Designing & Coding with Minecraft (Rising 3rd â€“ 6th Grade)
Canâ€™t get enough Minecraft? Curious how to take your gaming skills to the next level? MODAâ€™s Designing & Coding with Minecraft camp will challenge campers to use Minecraft as a computer design tool and to collaborate using the design process. Campers will learn about Minecraft servers, an integral part of the Minecraft community that allows users to collaborate and build worlds together.
This camp will delve into Minecraftâ€™s expanding horizons, challenging campers to learn the steps necessary to create 3D CAD models of Minecraft structures, to use command blocks that teach coding, to learn different aspects of a Minecraft server, and to experiment with Redstone circuitry (a building tool which is used to activate or control mechanisms in Minecraft). Campers will create their own texture packs and mods. Campers will study mini-games and collaborate in teams to design their own games on MODAâ€™s safe, multiplayer Minecraft server.
Along the way campers will test their designs with each other, as they use design-thinking to improve their user experiences. At the end of camp, each team will present their designs to guardians and friends.
