"Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by Mojang….The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat.” - Wiki
Minecraft is the wildly popular online building game that kids can’t get enough of. Similar to Lego, the building and problem solving aspect of the game is becoming an asset to the education field. The creative freedom that players experience provides many benefits that other games do not.
At Emagination Computer camp there are two Minecraft workshops that kids from 8-17 can participate in. Additionally available is a separate program called Minecraft Coding Camp for teens where players learn to create mods to edit the game.
For more on the game check out these kid friendly youtube channels that are focused on Minecraft!
Many thanks to our tech counselor Bobby for sending in his curriculum so early! You rock!

Hello my name is Una! This is my second year as an Assistant Director at Emagination Computer Camps.
During the school year I work at Hampton University in the Student Affairs division. I am also an Ed.D candidate in Higher Education Administration at Florida International University.
