Play-based Coding & Worldbuilding with Minecraft & Bloxel
Budding artists, game designers, storytellers, programmers, and players, this is your camp! Let’s build super-sky-scrapers, gigantic pixel art, and 3D geometric designs that combine creativity, coding, and real-life engineering concepts. This fun-first intro to coding immerses us into modded Minecraft with the introduction of visual programing based through ComputerCraft, as well as with the Bloxel game design set! We’ll design and code our new worlds and games with real-world blocks and bring our creations to life through Bloxels animated landscapes, characters, and objects. This is play-based computer programming that leads to a lifelong love of creativity and coding. Game on!
“Young engineers ages 6-14 will build, play and learn together and on their own according to their interests and abilities. Your child may work on a project in either of the age groups listed here.”
Creative Coding with Minecraft & Roblox
Young programmers will build and play within the Minecraft and Roblox worlds to create interactive maps, contraptions, and interactive virtual automation systems in this fun-first immersion into play-based computer programming. We’ll use the educational modification for Minecraft, ComptuerCraft, and the game design platform, Roblox, to code and create with visual and text-based programming in the LUA programming language. We’ll use 3D virtual construction to explore real-life coding solutions to engineering problems. Introductions and connections to coding languages make this computer programming and design camp a leap toward a lifelong love of coding and creativity.
