Don’t just let your children play Minecraft, get them coding with it! In this live online weekly class, the students will be taught to code using Minecraft, in a block-based programming language (Microsoft MakeCode).
This class runs like an after school club. There is a class once a week every week at the same time. Minecraft coding sessions last an hour.

Challenges may vary depending on the child’s age/ability as we have multiple streams running within each session.
- A laptop/computer or tablet with the Zoom installed.
- A laptop/computer or an iPad with Minecraft Education edition installed
Age Requirement: 7+
No prior coding experience necessary. Minecraft play experience is highly desired but not essential.
MINECRAFT EDUCATION EDITION SETUP:
Please download Minecraft Education Edition for free on any of the following devices:
- A Mac computer/laptop (download here)
- A Windows PC/laptop (download here)
- A Chromebook (download here)
- An iPad (other tablets are not supported – download from the app store)
– Please check Minecraft Education Edition system requirements here.
It is highly recommended that you use two devices, one to work on, and the other for Zoom where the tutor will be sharing his or her screen and communicating with your child. A mobile phone isn’t ideal for Zoom as the screen is too small.
JOINING THE CLASS
Your child will need to be in a quiet space away from any background noise. We can’t always see your child’s screen so they may need some adult supervision from time to time to make sure they are getting the most out of their lesson.
