Weekly Minecraft Coding Club:

Don’t just let your children play Minecraft; get them coding with it! In this live online weekly class, the students will be taught to code using Minecraft, in a block-based programming language (Microsoft MakeCode).

In this 1 hour weekly class, students will be taught to code using Minecraft. Every week, there will be a new exciting, action-packed project with builds and mobs of all sorts! Each week, we work on a new topic from start to finish so new joiners will not be at a disadvantage. 

Age Requirement: 7+ 

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at children who are at least years of age. 

What we will cover:

  • Learn block-based Microsoft MakeCode coding similar to Scratch
  • Use loops and conditionals (IF/THEN/ELSE)
  • Understand variables (number, Boolean, string)
  • Create and use functions
  • Use all of the above to make games and build structures

This class runs like an after-school club. There is a class once a week every week at the same time. Minecraft coding sessions last an hour.

Class Agenda:

  • Welcome and Introductions
  • Overview of the topic
  • Coding in Minecraft
  • Creative time decorating
  • Testing and playing
  •  Publishing and sharing
  • Wrap up

Teaching Methodology:

Our approach is project-based. We strongly believe that engaged, happy students are the best learners. Our projects have an end goal, and most are game-based. We use coding to solve a problem. We have up to 5 students in this class, allowing the class to be interactive with lots of opportunities to ask questions and share knowledge.

No prior coding experience is necessary. Minecraft play experience is highly desired but not essential.

  • A laptop/computer or tablet with the Zoom installed.
  • A laptop/computer or an iPad with Minecraft Education edition installed

MINECRAFT EDUCATION EDITION SETUP:

Please download Minecraft Education Edition for free on any of the following devices:

  • A Mac computer/laptop (download here)
  • A Windows PC/laptop (download here)
  • A Chromebook (download here)
  • An iPad (other tablets are not supported – download from the app store)

– Please check the Minecraft Education Edition system requirements here.

It is highly recommended that you use two devices, one to work on, and the other for Zoom, where the tutor will share his or her screen and communicate with your child. A mobile phone isn’t ideal for Zoom as the screen is too small.

JOINING THE CLASS 

Your child will need to be in a quiet space away from any background noise. We can’t always see your child’s screen so they may need some adult supervision from time to time to make sure they are getting the most out of their lesson.

    Your tutors are really good. They understand primary school aged kids and are skilled at teaching them the coding whilst making the sessions fun. Very well done.
