Description

Learning to modify or "mod" sandbox-style games like 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!

Students will need to have their own Minecraft account (Java Edition) to take this workshop. This can be purchased by going to the MINECRAFT SITE.

You will learn:

  • The process to design and plan all the details, instructions, and flow of the game
  • Basic concepts of programming including events, variables, conditionals, functions, and arrays via a visual environment or using Javascript
  • Fundamental game design principles to create engaging experiences

Prerequisites:

  • No prior knowledge or experience is required

Technical Requirements:

Students must have access to a computer as well as additional hardware and software. Some programs or courses may indicate additional technology requirements, and not all programs are Mac compatible.

  • Windows PC or Mac computer with web camera
  • Display with minimum resolution of 1024 x 768. While it is not mandatory, it is recommended to have a second monitor connected to the computer to extend the desktop. This allows the student to more easily follow what the instructor is demonstrating while concurrently being able to see the software environment that the student is working within.
  • Headset with microphone
  • Three-button mouse
  • Broadband internet connection
  • Current, major internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, or Safari)
  • Latest version of Adobe Reader
  • Printer

Students will also have to have their own Minecraft
