MINECRAFT for ages 8 - 12
Typically, kids play Minecraft at home with little to no direction or goals in mind. Now, approach gameplay from a new angle to learn how to think critically about your work with the infinite possibilities of the game. Create themes, storylines, dialog between characters, objectives, goals, and more. Most anything imaginable can be performed in Minecraft. It is the epitome of creativity–limitless opportunity to build, discover, and problem-solve. In recent years, the game has gained traction as an educational tool, acknowledged by many as an important vehicle for engaging kids in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields such as programming, video game design & development, level design, and more. There will be supervised breaks with outdoor activities planned.
