CampMODA at Lovett - Architectural Design with Minecraft 2019

Add to My CalendarJun 24-Jul 12, 2019
Last Date to register: Saturday, August 31st, 2019

Two one-week sessions are offered this year

 

Want to be an architect? Love playing Minecraft? Bring these two passions together with MODA’s Architectural Design with Minecraft camp.

 

Camper architects will be commissioned to design a building on the The Lovett School campus. They’ll learn how the building will function, study the site, and work collaboratively to brainstorm ideas for a structure that fulfills needs and responds to its environment. They’ll also learn and follow basic design processes used in architecture to design a future-forward, human-centered structure. Using computer-aided design programs  — Minecraft, SketchUp, and Tinkercad — they’ll work in teams to design a building and bring it to life. They’ll be challenged to consider a wide variety of variables such as aesthetics, sustainability, construction materials, and user experience as they build. They’ll design the building’s exterior appearance, as well as its interior features, and use Minecraft’s Redstone functionality to provide power and light as needed. Over the course of the week, campers will learn about innovative architects, study famous structures, and practice sketching buildings they see and imagine. While we provide a computer for each participant, many campers express the desire to share designs they’ve already created. As long as they feel comfortable ensuring the safety of their devices, young designers are welcome to bring the portable electronics they use to play Minecraft.


This camp will be taught June 24- 28 and July 8-12  from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Parents are invited to join us on Fridays from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm to share the fun and see what campers have learned. The camp is open to rising 4th-8th graders. Weeklong campMODA sessions (5 days) cost $495 ($100 non-refundable registration fee + $395 tuition). Camper should bring their own lunch.
