Coding with Minecraft
SMALL GROUPS, TAUGHT LIVE
Challenge your child with logic problems using our educational version of Minecraft.
2 hours a day of learning with a specialist teacher guiding a small group of creative, intelligent students.
The lengthy lockdown has children struggling to manage their screen time and excess energy. Our camp offers your child a chance to learn something useful and creative, geared towards the logic of coding.
Immersed in Minecraft, children explore the world of programming through play. They solve puzzles and collaborate to build clever mechanisms in groups of 2 to 4. Guided and supported by an expert teacher, they take on new creative challenges of varying difficulty every day.
Make the most of this time at home by fostering your child’s creativity and problem-solving skills, with collaborative work involving peers.
Children are supervised by caring and attentive adults. Collaborative work is guided by the rigorous rules set out in our new special version of Minecraft, designed specifically for use in the virtual classroom, after four years’ experience teaching thousands of children with Minecraft.
You can register your child for one or more weeks of camp to benefit from fresh, engaging activities.

WHO IS THIS ACTIVITY FOR?
This camp is for kids and teens who are interested in computers, like to solve puzzles, and build things together with others.
The ability to type on the keyboard is a course prerequisite. No knowledge of coding is required, but a good command of Minecraft is necessary. The course uses advanced game features. Even Minecraft “champions” will find something to challenge them.
The camp is suitable for ages 8 to 14. Students are separated into groups by age.
ABOUT THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE
Students learn in the thick of the action by having fun, solving puzzles, and creating 3D structures and mechanisms.
- Computer logic: Simulate electronic circuits in Minecraft (with the Redstone function).
- 3D basics: Create realistically proportioned buildings, using Cartesian coordinates (x, y, z).
- Game design: Design short games to be tested by other players.
- Problem solving: Develop planning and self-reliance skills. Learn to find solutions independently, calmly, and methodically.
- Computer skills: Write careful, precise keyboard commands. Use rapid typing to communicate (chat).
ABOUT VIRTUAL COURSES
Students taking our virtual courses love the benefits:
- Children feel right at home, since they’re familiar with live streaming, online multiplayer gaming, and Discord.
- The program includes group activities that encourage teamwork and socialization.
- They can get help from the teacher to use their personal computer if needed.
- They spend more time learning by continuing work at home, between classes, with online help.
- Parents can also attend the course to help if needed.
A personal computer hooked up to the internet. Headset with a microphone.
You have until Friday to sign your child up for the following Monday’s session.
On the Saturday before Monday’s class, you’ll get an email with the Studio XP access code. On the Sunday before the first class, all parents and students are invited to attend a tech meeting where we check to see if all software is installed correctly and that all computers, headphones, and microphones are working.
On Monday, at the scheduled start time, students join their group and the teacher starts the lesson, which will take place every day at the same time.
Yes, it is possible to sign up for several weeks. Your child will continue work with the group that started that week. The registration fee is only paid once, even if you add on weeks after initially signing up.
