What Kids Will Learn and Do

  • Plan and design a Minecraft world around a theme, and brainstorm what it should contain
  • Design and build structures and environments that serve a purpose related to what you want the player to see or do
  • Work with a team to plan, communicate, divide up jobs and help each other learn and build
  • Learn how to add redstone and command block features to add automation, game mechanics, challenges and hidden bonuses

This class takes place entirely within the Minecraft game environment on our own private servers. We set up custom worlds to facilitate teamwork and learning and we have rules of appropriate in-game behavior that kids are expected to follow.

Class Schedule

Students select one regular day and time to attend. We only offer this class once per week currently, so make up lessons are not available.

Classes are capped at 10 students, and will have a 5:1 ratio or better at this age group.

All of our instructors have relevant coding or technology expertise and are trained at Power Up in teaching skills and the specifics of our Coding Curriculum.

The version of Minecraft we use is Java Edition on PC/Mac.

Promotion to the next level

This class is not part of our coding curriculum sequence, and no further levels are available during the school year. In the summer, interested students can register for our Minecraft Modding camp, which brings coding to the Minecraft environment.
