    Learn about electricity, circuits and electronics using Minecraft Redstone! Redstone components like levers are just like switches on real-world devices and Redstone dust is laid down in the game like electrical wiring. Discover how to use Redstone to create virtual logic gates, resistors, transistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, and sensors. Use these along with other components like pistons to build amazing mechanisms and self moving machines!

  • MINECRAFT Coding Intermediate Level Take your Minecraft coding knowledge further with the new Code Kids Intermediate level Minecraft Coding course this autumn 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 which were covered during the Autumn and Summer term classes. 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 sessions last an hour.

    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.
