Minecraft Essentials!

Minecraft has over 100 million users across various platforms, and educators are increasingly using the game as a teaching tool. So what is it, and how can your kids benefit?

This course is designed to be a 16 hour course; to be conducted over a 2 day duration (9am – 6pm both days)

How Minecraft works

At its core, Minecraft is about placing and mining blocks. The game world consists of 3D objects—mainly cubes—that represent materials such as dirt, stone, various ores, water and tree trunks. Players gather these material blocks and use them to form various constructions.

You can pretty much code anything to construct buildings and beautifully surrounded environments. They learn to manage resources. It’s great for beginners who haven’t tried programming. You can do anything you want, limited only by your imagination.

Requirement

  • Some fundamental programming knowledge

What do your kids learn?

  • Get exposed to programming
  • Learn to build a maze with an algorithm
  • Create your own house with the fun of coding
  • Encourage development and expansion of thinking skills
  • Encourage creativity in your kids
  • Develop cognitive skills

How do we at Kidscode impart our knowledge to your child?

  • We guide your child through step-by-step exercises for their first project
  • We get them to rebuild this first project or do a slight variation of it
  • We then leave them to build a simple brand new project from scratch
  • We get them to work on this new project without any guidance
  • We repeat the process to instill confidence and familiarity

This recursive training method helps to instill the basics of coding, the sense of adventure and the confidence to explore new ways to code even after the course has been completed!
