Minecraft is an easy-to-learn video game where what your child can build is only limited by their imagination. Contribute to our child-friendly, private server and make your mark by building with various types of 3D blocks. All projects are a shared, collaborative effort.
We want to offer students a unique experience, which is why we use our very own Minecraft modification called “Heroes.” Heroes is a mod that allows players to have more control over their character than in traditional Minecraft. Much like they would while playing Dungeons & Dragons, each child can choose a class (such as warriors, druids, pirates, ninjas, mages, clerics, and bards), gain experience, level up, and earn powerful spells and abilities.
Our Minecraft class promotes skills in project planning, resource management, typing, and other technical and creative skills.
Classes are conducted over Zoom, and the class Zoom link will be attached to your receipt.
A reminder email will be sent an hour before the activity begins.
IMPORTANT NOTE: High-end Computer is Required for Minecraft! The following devices will NOT work during our workshop:

The instructor kept the students engaged using creative activities for the students and explained tasks and expectations thoroughly.
Probably promotion of the program. This was an opportunity that children would really enjoy and appreciate. I felt not many children knew about this.

I loved how engaged the kids were and how excited and how much laughter and happy screaming my daughter did. She was so excited to share all her exploits after class.

Our 10 year old son at first said he didn't like Dungeons and Dragons, but I suggested he try it out. AND of course, he loved it! He said the best thing about the class was "defeating the wizard."

“It was really fun, I loved it. I loved the mods. Elizabeth is my favorite teacher. I loved that it was like D&D Minecraft and I got invited to it.”
If there was more classes. And there weren’t any dungeons.
