Minecraft Workshops

Minecraft Modding Workshop

Our workshop teaches students how to use different programs to mod in Minecraft. Modding means that they'll be able to put new things into the game: they can create their own superhero characters, tools, or special abilities. This activity will also introduce them to the basics of programming.

Create worlds with Minecraft!

Does your kid know what would make Minecraft even better? This course will teach them how to introduce their ideas into the game, through modding, or in-game modifications. One of the secrets behind Minecraft's massive popularity is that it's easily modified and allows players to tweak it to their personal preferences with a little bit of know-how. The computer game industry is full of designers and programmers who started out by modding games, and found the path to a game development career through this activity.

Highlights

The workshop will center around the following themes:

Making Minecraft mods through the creation of brand new, unique items and characters, or through the changing of the attributes of preexisting objects

The use of the Blockbench 3D design program that lets students create their own, unique objects

The use of the MCreator modding software to give objects unique abilities and behavior, and also to learn the basics of programming

Exporting and using mods

Basic Minecraft knowledge is needed.
