Frequently asked questions

  • Why enroll your kids in Minecraft coding classes?

    First is familiarity: Minecraft remains one of the most popular games of all time. Its simple interface paired with a focus on creativity — rather than competition — makes it compelling for young minds to explore. It also offers the benefit of highly customizable and configurable code, allowing anyone with the right skills and knowledge to change the world itself.
    However, that’s just the beginning. When kids learn Minecraft coding, it opens the door to critical and creative thinking that’s logically driven but virtually limitless. With a basic understanding of Minecraft operations, children quickly learn to create environments and explore the boundaries of virtual worlds. Even better? The immediate impact of their actions in the game can help foster the drive to dig deeper and discover exactly how Minecraft operations work.
    Put simply, Minecraft is the foundation, offering the solid framework kids need to learn more complex coding skills such as Python or Java. It helps them eventually make the move to writing mods and programs that modify the Minecraft world — or create entirely new experiences.

  • What Youngsters Learn in Our Minecraft Courses

    Our Minecraft classes can help kids master key skills, including:

    • Basic Minecraft modding: Kids can learn the basics of creating modifications — or “mods” — for Minecraft, and learn how to publish and deploy them on private servers.
    • Game design: More advanced Minecraft editing teaches kids to build games including Capture the Flag, Slimeball and Soccer.
    • Minecraft add-ons: Children create customized add-ons and mods with custom behavior to push the boundaries of basic Minecraft.
    • Complex creations:
    • Advanced modding and gaming: No Minecraft coding experience would be complete without an intermediate look at advanced modding and game design on private servers to help kids explore the limits of their imagination.
