During this popular course, participants will create their own custom mods (Minecraft character models) and then use AI (Artificial Intelligence) programming to teach the mods to respond in different situations. All this using the Java programming language. This course is suitable for both beginners and participants with programming experience.
The workshops are fun, educational, and practical! Pay attention!
For this course, we use the Java Edition of Minecraft. You must purchase this edition yourself to participate in the course. The price can be found on this website. You will receive instructions on how to purchase and install the Java Edition in the confirmation email.

The course takes place online in Zoom. The trainers give interactive workshops. With the help of instructional videos and guidance from the trainers, you will then start programming games in breakout rooms. In addition, we start every week with an energizer, to get to know each other better. And of course, we take a break in between. On the last day of the course, there will be an online demo that you can invite family or friends so that they can see online what we have done during the course!
Our trainers are experts in programming, game building, and teaching young people, so you'll learn from the best.
