What's Included

Learn Programming With MineCraft and ComputerCraft! In this class, students will learn programming skills using ComputerCraft where you can add little robots and computers to the world of MineCraft. These can be programmed using the LUA scripting language. Students will learn about variables, functions, conditional statements, loops, and more, as well as improving their typing skills in a fun, familiar environment where the results of their work are immediately visible and very rewarding. Students will conceptualize, write, and debug their very own program using new skills that remain useful outside of the MineCraft environment. The LUA language is a fully featured and freely available programming language that can be used to write applications and games, and is a perfect springboard for learning mo0re complex languages like Java, C++, and others. LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Our older students will be furthering their programming abilities using these more advanced robots! What is the difference between a move tank block and a move steering block? We will find out as we experience several different robots to explore the expanded palate of the EV3’s, incorporating different sensors and types of motors. The students will challenge themselves as they participate in building an extreme project building an Elephant that walks, trumpets and picks up objects with its trunk. Is your robotics student up to the challenge?
