What is the Minecraft Coding Intensive?

The Minecraft Coding Intensive (MCI) is a program for teens to learn programming on Minecraft. This specially designed curriculum takes a beginner without any programming experience to coding mods on Minecraft. The incremental curriculum ensures that fundamental programming concepts are gradually introduced and reinforced at every lesson. Students will code on a beginner language in the first two classes to gain solid understanding on programming, and then proceed to code with Javascript on Minecraft for the rest of the course.


Who is this for?

  • Minecraft Coding Intensive: 12 – 14 year-olds without coding experience
  • Minecraft Coding Junior: 8 – 11 year-olds who are graduates of Game Programming Bootcamp (Apprentice and Explorer)


What do students gain?

A tonne of new knowledge, useful skills, and thinking capacity. Specifically:

  • Understanding what programming is
  • Project design, storyboarding and development on Scratch
  • Programming Javascript, a language used commonly on websites and web apps
  • Minecraft server administration
  • Minecraft modding
  • Understanding fundamental programming concepts
  • Applying concepts to design of Minecraft mod
  • Coding a game within Minecraft
  • Insight to math usage in games. If you like math, you will see it in action. If you dislike math, it will suddenly appear more interesting to you.

FAQs

Can students below 12 years old participate in Minecraft Coding Intensive?

Yes, if the student has had sufficient coding and/or robotics experience. Otherwise, you may enrol in The Kid Coders Game Programming Bootcamp (both Apprentice and Explorer) and do the Minecraft Coding Junior. This gives the student a progressive learning experience from coding beginner to a Minecraft coder. Please contact us so we may advice you personally.

Can I use Minecraft Pocket Edition for this course?

No, you can not. Please obtain a desktop version for this course. You may get it from the official Minecraft website

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Drop us an e-mail at hello@thekidcoders.com or contact us via other means.
