    What do children learn in Minecraft classes?

    Children put their math, design, and technology skills to the test in Minecraft courses. Kids learn how to use Minecraft: Java Edition to code custom items to their own Minecraft server. This can include original creatures, tools, and blocks. Students build fun games within their world, which they can play with classmates or others. Collaboration is fundamental to the structure of classes, as children work together to build elaborate environments. Kids learn about design, planning, and even cartography in these classes. 

    Basic and advanced coding techniques are taught in all classes. Children learn how to program loops, variables, conditional statements, and more. At more advanced levels, coding challenges increase in difficulty, and teams work together to solve problems with math and analytical skills. Prices for Minecraft programs vary from $100 to $500. Higher priced options offer intensive training in programming.

    About advanced Minecraft classes

    Advanced Minecraft courses emphasize collaboration within their curriculum. Children work with others their age to create. Conflict management and compromise are key skills learned during these activities. These are useful in various academic or professional settings. Kids also make new friends during this process, of course!

    More advanced programs include STEM programming. Math, science, technology, and engineering skills are all enhanced in these classes. Kids learn reasoning, critical thinking, and problem solving skills vital for academic success.

    Why enroll in Minecraft classes?

    Children explore their creative and technical skills in Minecraft programs. Some other things offered in these classes include:

    • Promotes careers in programming. Minecraft demonstrates how programming can be fun! Children realize how the customization of their online world is code-based and they develop an interest in things such as robotics or video game design.
    • Sparks creativity. Children are awarded for their originality in class, pushing them to reach new heights in creativity. Combining creativity with logic is valued in academic settings as well as later in life, in the workspace. Developing this dual skill set from an early age can have very positive long-term benefits. 
    • Cooperation and collaboration. Minecraft cannot be “won” or “lost”, and kids can work together to create fascinating, fun worlds. The non-competitive nature of the game makes it a healthy corrective to other games and sports.
