What's Included

Level 2: Redstone and Programming: Redstone Minecraft -ers are the electrical engineers of Minecraft and their creations often amaze and confound more basic players. Command blocks are special blocks in Minecraft that can be programmed to accomplish specific tasks. ComputerCraft is a modification for Minecraft that’s all about computer programming. It allows you to build in-game computers and robots. Used individually and together, these elements of Minecraft open up elements of programming within the game’s unique and engaging environment. Also: Cannons! Minecraft needs no introduction. It has become a cultural phenomenon with over 23 million copies sold, and if you play yourself, you know how much time this game can consume. The game mechanics, however, are incredibly analogous to engineering. In Minecraft University, we will use the game as a tool to focus on problem solving and programming techniques. We will also use Scratch, a visual programming language designed by MIT, to enhance the lessons of programming. Programming in Minecraft teaches you to think logically and introduces you to the inner world of computing. Camps are offered on a graduated basis, with the skills being taught advancing from the basics of the program through programming and quantum physics, with a dip into Java. You will be provided a coursework book and access to a campers-only whitelisted server for one year. Campers must have an account with www.minecraft.net. Minecraft University offers classes in Levels 1–4. Begin with Level 1 and/or Level 2 during the week of June 9 – June 13. Levels 2, 3, and 4 will be offered during the June 16 – June 27 session. Prerequisite: Level 1 or equivalent experience
