Course Overview

Become a part of the Maker Movement by using Minecraft! In this course you will make your own world, blocks and structures. As a Minecraft Maker with Fire Tech, you will be thrown into an intensive mix of creativity, gaming and engineering. Each student finishes with an impressive command of important computing concepts, practical making skills, and an enhanced understanding of how to expand and enjoy their Minecraft universe.

This is an engaging course for 9-12-year-olds that will get them building, designing, coding, and making, all using the Minecraft “sandbox”.

Minecraft is an incredibly popular block building game, the second most-downloaded game of all time. Through this course students can gain experience in core computing concepts such as Computer Aided Design, conditions, loops, and iteration.

We have explored more of the educational and computing benefits of Minecraft in our blog post on  The Benefits of Learning with Minecraft.

This is an online course led by an expert tutor who is fully DBS-checked. You will join a small group of other young learners online, working together and making lots of progress in fun and interactive sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.

You will need a laptop or desktop computer capable of running Minecraft Java Edition. As long as the computer is able to run Minecraft it should be able to run the other tools too. The tools in this course will work with the Minecraft Java Edition only, this can be on Mac OS or Windows, they will not work with the Windows 10 Edition, Pocket Edition, Pi Edition or the various Console versions.

You will also need a license for Minecraft Java Edition which can be bought from here: Minecraft Java Edition

This course is also available in a Week-long format.
