Class Experience

Join us for an immersive camp that combines coding and imaginative storytelling in the creative, collaborative space of MODA’s Minecraft design server.

In this camp, we’ll use the design process to create interactive stories.


We'll talk about why we tell stories and why we love to listen to them and read them. Then, campers will compose stories independently and collaboratively and build Minecraft worlds in which those stories can take place.


Along the way they'll become better storytellers, learn key concepts of the architectural design process, use Minecraft as a CAD tool to create and interact in worlds of their own, and hone coding skills that let them use Minecraft more efficiently.

Campers will:



    Learn about collaborative storytelling
    Learn to design interactive worldsLearn to build quickly by coding with WorldEdit
    Engage in the Storytelling Process
    Build Communities
    Practice Role-Playing
    Create and explore imaginative worlds of their own design
    Learn to use Minecraft as a design tool for exploring and addressing real-world problems
    Use the design thinking process as a means of addressing the challenges they face in this course
    Refine the human interaction skills used in design thinking, including empathy, teamwork, brainstorming, prototyping, and testing and refining ideas Improve their coding skills as they learn more refined ways to interact with Minecraft
    Develop collaborative online skills
    Create and present projects online


Campers will build on the MODA Minecraft server, meaning that participants will be able to continue to access their work and keep collaborating with one another and with others once their camp ends.

Your camper will need to have access to Minecraft Java Edition in order to participate in this camp.Java edition is compatible only with Macs and PCs. Chromebooks, tablets, and phones will not work.
