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:
- Consoles (Xbox, switch, etc.)
You will receive an email 30 minutes before class starts with a link to the class and access instructions.
