Galactic Voyager in Minecraft
Discover an exciting new way to learn about space travel with a space-themed Minecraft mod pack called Galacticraft. Transform Minecraft with features such as the solar system, rocket machinery and fantastic new tools.
Build Your Minecraftonaut Command Centre
First we will build our command centre so that we have a base of operations to prepare for space voyage and somewhere we can launch and test our rockets.
Prepare for Launch!
We need a few things before we can head off into space. A steady spaceship, fuel loaders, oxygen masks and much more. We need to be prepared for anything that might happen up there! We’ll have to assess our resources and see if we can even reach our destination. Remember, we need enough fuel for the journey back to Earth too!
Houston we have lift-off! Let’s decide which destination we want to go to take off into space. After a successful landing we will take our first steps on a new Planet, Moon or even an Asteroid. Now it’s time to colonise, explore strange new worlds and have tons of fun getting used to gravity levels different from Earth!

During the session we’ll instruct you on what steps you need to follow to become a Minecraftonaut. You’ll be shown a live demonstration of what to do: starting from scratch to reaching the stars! The instructor will demonstrate the tools onscreen and take questions throughout. The instructor will provide links to the relevant downloads at the END of the session for students who wish to attempt their own activities afterwards.
Whether you want to mine cheese on the Moon or dodge meteors on Mars, this Experience has got all your astronaut needs covered. You might just make some friends with alien villagers on the way!
