Winter Camp: Designing with Minecraft for 8-12 Year Olds

Can’t get enough of Minecraft? Curious how to take your gaming skills to the next level? campMODA’s Designing with Minecraft camp is a unique opportunity to design a world within Minecraft and be a part of shaping the game that everybody loves to play.

Minecraft servers are an integral part of the Minecraft community and allow users to collaborate and build worlds together.  This summer, campers will have the opportunity to design in MODA’s Minecraft server. We will investigate the physical design of the server and learn about different types of servers and their hosting. We will work to create a safe multiplayer experience for all ages that focuses on design in its many forms -- architecture, urban design, and industrial design. By designing in the server, campers will use design thinking -- a problem-solving user-driven tool to build empathy and creativity.

Skills campers will learn:

  • How to create Minecraft worlds on computers
  • Keyboarding and other computer skills
  • Design Thinking
  • Investigating architecture through Minecraft
  • Basics of computer programming
