Virtually Gorton: Minecraft

Minecraft isn’t just the world’s most popular game; it’s also an excellent tool for teaching a wide array of subjects. At Athena, we’ve developed a project based approach to a variety of important topics using Minecraft Educational; our course will cover the following:

-Personalized Game Design

-Animation and storytelling

-Programming in Python and Javascript

-Architecture and design

-The fundamentals of electrical circuitry using Minecraft’s patented Redstone circuit system

-Logic gates, multi-system mechanisms

-Modding

At the end of each class, students take home a freshly minted 3D-printed model of one of their designs!

This class runs on Saturdays, May 22 – June 26, 10:00am – 11:00am

Intended for kids in 1st – 6th grades
