MINECRAFT Coding Beginner Level

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).

Age Requirement: 7+ 

MINECRAFT Coding Intermediate Level

Take your Minecraft coding knowledge further with the new Code Kids Intermediate level Minecraft Coding course this term. You will take your knowledge of creative game play to the next level as we explore the interplay between code, command blocks, and Redstone to create multi-player games. We will also introduce Minecraft JavaScript and Python coding to children. This will set them up for the next level of their coding journey which will use ‘real-world’ text-based programming languages such as Java, Python or JavaScript.

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at children who are at least 9 years of age or those who have a good grasp of the beginner level concepts.

What we will cover in the Intermediate Minecraft course:

  • We will focus more on multiplayer games where the children can interactively play inside each other’s Minecraft worlds.
  • Advanced data structures: using object Variables, Lists and Dictionaries
  • Use of Logic, and nested logic statements to make in-game decisions.
  • Advanced loops: using For loops and While loops embedded with logic
  • Using Functions to create reusable and clean code.
  • Combining Command blocks and Code to create highly interactive games
  • We will explore basic JavaScript and Python coding techniques. This is the next step up from block-based coding and opens up a whole new world of ‘real-life’ coding opportunities.

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.

No prior coding experience necessary. Minecraft play experience is highly desired but not essential.

Equipment Needed:

  • A laptop/computer or tablet with the Zoom installed.
  • A laptop/computer or an iPad with Minecraft Education edition installed

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.
