SFSC Summer Cyber Workshop


Week 1

Minecraft Coding Tech Camp
Don’t just play Minecraft, create your own world! If your child loves Minecraft and wants to learn how to design and program new ideas into their worlds, then join us in this awesome Minecraft Coding Tech Camp. 

What Kids Will Learn
In Minecraft Coding Tech Camp, kids become the ruler of their own world, controlling their mobs and creatures while learning to change, customize, and edit their Minecraft territory. Kids learn how to code with a block-based visual programming language, using if-then and while-do statements, variables, and loops. With these tools, they automate processes inside the game, such as farming and mining.

Code Builder is a feature that allows students to learn coding in Minecraft using tools like, Tynker, Scratch, and Microsoft MakeCode. Students can use blocks of code to build and create in Minecraft.

Minecraft also helps prepare students for the future workplace, building skills like collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and systems thinking. The open learning environment gives students the freedom to experiment, encouraging creative self-expression and problem solving.
