Architectural Design with Minecraft
For Rising 4th to 8th Graders
Want to be an architect? Love playing Minecraft? Bring these two passions together with MODA’s Architectural Design with Minecraft camp.
Camper architects will be commissioned to design a building on the The Lovett School campus. They’ll learn how the building will function, study the site, and work collaboratively to brainstorm ideas for a structure that fulfills needs and responds to its environment. They’ll also learn and follow basic design processes used in architecture to design a future-forward, human-centered structure.
Using computer-aided design programs — Minecraft, SketchUp, and Tinkercad — they’ll work in teams to design a building and bring it to life. They’ll be challenged to consider a wide variety of variables such as aesthetics, sustainability, construction materials, and user experience as they build. They’ll design the building’s exterior appearance, as well as its interior features, and use Minecraft’s Redstone functionality to provide power and light as needed. Over the course of the week, campers will learn about innovative architects, study famous structures, and practice sketching buildings they see and imagine. While we provide a computer for each participant, many campers express the desire to share designs they’ve already created. As long as they feel comfortable ensuring the safety of their devices, young designers are welcome to bring the portable electronics they use to play Minecraft.
Parents are invited to join us on Fridays from 2:00pm to 4:00pm to share the fun and see what campers have learned.
