Can’t get enough Minecraft?

Curious how to take your gaming skills to the next level? MODA’s Minecraft: Build with Code camp will challenge campers to use Minecraft as a design tool and to collaborate using the design process.

This camp will delve into Minecraft’s expanding horizons, challenging campers to learn the steps necessary to create 3D CAD models of Minecraft structures, to use command blocks that teach coding, to learn different aspects of a Minecraft server, and to experiment with Redstone circuitry (a building tool which is used to activate or control mechanisms in Minecraft). Campers will create their own texture packs and mods. Campers will study mini-games and collaborate in teams to design their own games on MODA’s safe, multiplayer Minecraft server.

Along the way campers will test their designs with each other, as they use design-thinking to improve their user experiences. At the end of camp, each team will present their designs to guardians and friends.

Campers will:

  • Learn about Design and Design Thinking
  • Learn to use Minecraft as a design tool
  • Design texture packs and mods
  • Gain familiarity with Minecraft servers
  • Design and test mini-games
  • Learn to use computer-aided design programs
  • Learn about and use command block coding
  • Learn about and use Redstone circuitry
  • Learn about Minecraft servers
  • Get an introduction to Javascript
  • Practice design thinking as a problem-solving method
  • Discover alternative ways to use and create with Minecraft
  • Develop collaborative online skills
  • Create and present projects online

Campers will work on the MODA Minecraft server, meaning that participants will be able to continue to access their work and keep collaborating with one another and with others once their camp ends.

Campers will receive 20 hours of live instruction over the course of our 5-day camp. They’ll also participate in 15-20 hours of structured, self-guided exploration.
