Minecraft Power Users (grades 3-6)

Are you an experienced PC Minecraft user who is well-versed in a vanilla Minecraft world and in crafting recipes?  Are you interested in checking out modpacks that let you ride an ender dragon or a creeper pig?  Do you want to get a NASA workbench to build a rocket and blast off to the moon and plant your own flag on the surface?  The possibilities are endless with different modpacks.  Come have fun!  

LEGO® Robotics (grades 2-5)

With the LEGO® We Do Robotics System, children can build and program their own robotic creations.  Designed by the experts at MIT, this unique system teaches children about simple machines, engineering, computer programming, and so much more.  There are all new models to tinker with this fall.

Coding in Minecraft (grades 3-6)

This class is more than just “mining” and “crafting” in Minecraft.  Students will learn a range of coding concepts like loops, functions, and conditionals using JAVA to create MODs for the game.  This a fun introduction to object oriented computer programming.
