Minecraft is an open-ended, creative game about breaking and placing blocks. Minecraft allows kids to connect and play together, encouraging peer learning and mentoring as kids teach each other about the intricacies of the game while collaborating to complete challenges.

We encourage beginning and advanced players to come to this workshop. Kids will have the opportunity to play with the group on a server with some challenges to complete.

More experienced players can share something about Minecraft with the group. This could be something they have built, a redstone machine, their favorite mod or texture pack, a useful command or technique for battling monsters, or anything that they think is interesting about Minecraft.

We can help people install mods and interested kids can learn to write their own mods to customize the game.
