What's Included

The next level of Minecraft is here! Are you tired of having to mine the 'boring' stuff? Did you know that you can create and program Minecraft ROBOTS to do your mining for you? Learn how to code using the Minecraft ComputerCraft Mod and put those robots to work! Learn and apply real programming concepts, while writing real code that controls computers and robots (“Turtles”) to complete tasks and challenges. In completing these challenges, campers will utilize basic programming concepts such as loops, variables, conditional statements, and functions. This program area is recommended for ages 8+. Prior experience playing Minecraft is also recommended. No coding experience required! Lunch and afternoon activities/field trips included.
