Designing & Coding with Minecraft

For Rising 3rd to 6th Graders

Can’t get enough Minecraft? Curious how to take your gaming skills to the next level? MODA’s Designing & Coding with Minecraft camp will challenge campers to use Minecraft as a computer design tool and to collaborate using the design process. Campers will learn about Minecraft servers, an integral part of the Minecraft community that allows users to collaborate and build worlds together.

This camp will delve into Minecraft’s expanding horizons, challenging campers to learn the steps necessary to create 3D CAD models of Minecraft structures, to use command blocks that teach coding, to learn different aspects of a Minecraft server, and to experiment with Redstone circuitry (a building tool which is used to activate or control mechanisms in Minecraft). Campers will create their own texture packs and mods. Campers will study mini-games and collaborate in teams to design their own games on MODA’s safe, multiplayer Minecraft server. MODA will provide a computer with the necessary software for each camper.

Parents are invited to join us on Fridays from 2:00pm to 4:00pm to share the fun and see what campers have learned.
