Programming in Minecraft - Portland5
With over 110,000,000 monthly users, and over 200,000 servers running in the world (some 8,000 at any one time), Minecraft has become one of the world’s top games, and certainly the top creative game.
There are over hundreds of thousands of people playing Minecraft at any moment! You probably know lots of people who spend time creating houses, roads, towns, mines, as well as gather experience points by battling monsters (mobs). What if you could start learning how to change what you are doing, not just playing with what the game comes with?
In the Programming in Minecraft Camp we will be using the software to start learning how to modify the gaming environment. There will also be time to "just play the game", but the focus will be on learning new skills that relate to programming in the environment.
Depending on the instructor and the campers, we will also spend time with basic computer logic and an introduction to computer languages.
You do not need to have a Minecraft account, but you should bring your login information with you if you have an account so you can play as yourself.
Open to ages 10 to 14
