Minecraft, one of the best-selling video games of all time, is the ultimate pillar to showcase children's creativity with building blocks. Minecraft provides a 3D canvas to create anything we have the resources for in the game, and by tapping into the code, we now have the additional power to create anything we can imagine.
This Minecraft modding class allows students to have full control over their 3D game world. Through teaching programming and technical concepts behind video game modding, this course empowers students to modify video games. Students will learn to draw 2D images using Pixlr and turn them into 3D objects in Minecraft, and that is just the tip of the iceberg of what can be achieved.
Through modding, each student develops a completely unique gameworld. Students will be able to share their unique worlds with others, creating a fun and educational experience.
Must have played Minecraft for 2 hours or more :D
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
