Have you ever wanted to be able to write a computer program that would talk to Minecraft and make things happen in the Minecraft World? Then this Experience is for you! We'll take you through the steps to get set up and ready to program, and demonstrate some of the fantastic things you can achieve.

In this Fire Tech Experience, we'll show you how to set up a Minecraft server on your machine, with a plugin that will allow you to write Python code to talk to the Minecraft World.

Once the server is set up you can write code to create a rainbow path that will follow you wherever you go. Create large buildings and other structures by running programs that you've written. Make simple animations that you can watch inside the Minecraft World.

By writing simple Python code you could build interactive content in the world, from multi-coloured disco floors to maze games where the maze changes as you walk through it. It's time to discover the possibilities of Coding in Minecraft!

FireTech Experiences are a new series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar style, using Zoom, with the main expert tutor showcasing a new interesting aspect of technology and learning. Apart from Zoom, no other downloads are required.
