Class Experience

Students will use the beloved and popular Minecraft platform as a gateway to learning the properties of electricity. In Minecraft, they will design machines that use pistons, levers, buttons, traps, and combination locks. They do this by using the game’s version of circuitry (called “Redstone”) to power buildings. The curriculum is designed for maximum fun coupled with hands-on learning. Robofun believes that good teaching recognizes that each child has their own learning style. Our teachers create an environment that allows students to progress at their own pace, practice collaboration, and fall in love with learning. Programs focus on developing confidence, grit, and the desire to solve problems. Requirements for this program include access to a laptop or iPad and a subscription to the Java edition of Minecraft. Please note that Chromebooks cannot run the Minecraft software.

It taught so much in every class, teaching not just how to build in Minecraft, but also explaining the real-world engineering principals of these lessons.

Improvements:

I just wish I could have taken more classes!

Loved:

After COVID and a year and a half of virtual online education, we were pleased that there was a "Class" to go to! Live teachers, kids, and best of all MineCraft instruction!

Improvements:

This is our family's third RoboFun course and our grandchild (10yrs) always comes out of class loving it! No improvements needed!
