Learning to modify or "mod" Minecraft is an excellent way to introduce students to programming. While this course is an ideal next step for students who may have been introduced to programming via "drag and drop" environments, no prior coding experience is required. Using a project-based approach, students learn to apply basic programming concepts such as variables, conditionals, loops, and methods, which in turn can be used to create new item recipes, NPCs, and other creations only they can imagine! There are no prerequisites for this course, however, students will need to have their own Minecraft account.
