What is the Minecraft Modding program?

The Minecraft Modding program shifts the perspective of young gamers from being a player (i.e. consumer) to a Minecraft mod developer (i.e. creator). Each level of the program widens the learners' view as they gradually build knowledge, competency, and practical experience in:

  • Building mods on Minecraft with a text-based coding language
  • Coding with Javascript
  • Designing and implementing algorithms

The Minecraft Modding incremental curriculum ensures that fundamental coding and Computational Thinking concepts are gradually introduced and reinforced at every lesson.



What do students gain?

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

  • Understanding what programming is
  • Project design, storyboarding and development
  • Programming Javascript, a language used commonly on web and mobile apps (think GMail, Facebook, Uber, many, many more)
  • 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.
  • …and other intangible technical knowledge, engineering mindset and personal values


Minecraft coding pack

Participants will receive a coding pack with course workbook, related reading materials and items. Participants earn themselves a certificate upon graduation.
