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 independent learning course, with a focus on project work. Students will work independently at their own pace through learning materials and assignments, and have weekly live onscreen tutorials for sharing progress and problem-solving. These tutorials are led by an expert, fully DBS-checked instructor, and you will join a small group of other young learners online, working together in fun and interactive sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.

What your child will learn

  • Enhanced understanding of STEM fields such as coding, game design and computational thinking.
  • Create a 3D world using third party tools.
  • Customise blocks using skins, attributes and behaviours.
  • Create in-game electronics circuits with Redstone.
  • Build and importing complex structures with MCEdit.
