Minecraft Engineering + Design

Students use Minecraft to complete a set of guided design challenges in a collaborative and scaffolded environment that encourages out-of-the-box thinking, teamwork and programming within the game’s framework! Then, using their in-game designs as templates, students will recreate  a working board game (with rules and systems they’ll develop) to play at camp! Each student will receive a 3D printed creeper, steve, die, and materials to create their working board game. Using CAD software design they will have the option to render an additional 3D model of choice to be printed and delivered the week following camp.

Pixel Animation Spectacular

Mining the retro techniques of yesteryear, students get a full-scale course in making old skool style pixel animations, directly on an iPad! Using animation techniques like onion skin, persistence of motion and Frames Per Second, students learn the secrets of rendering smooth animations that grab viewers’ attention, and receive .gif files they can keep and post wherever they see fit. Then, building upon those principles of pixel design, students will work in teams to make WALL SIZED recreations of their pixel art using post-it notes and a stop motion program to see their creations come to life in real time!

MineCRAFT Park Design + Minecraft Survival in Real Life

From SCREEN, TO STEAM, TO TEAM!

Want to enroll your child in a STEAM class with less screen time and more hands on building and collaboration?  Well this class has both! It takes the things your child loves--Minecraft--and challenges them to replicate the local landscape and layout of a community gem, Creasy Mahan Nature preserve, in preparation for real time survival skill development. From 9-12 in the morning session, students will walk around Creasy Mahan Nature Preserve armed with Minecraft PE and an iPad and are challenged to recreate the layout in the sandbox game of Minecraft. Minecraft is all about digging, creating shelters, and surviving creepers that come at night. From 1:00-4:00 pm, the afternoon session, students will take their skills outside and apply them to fort building, crafting solar ovens, and other nature themed maker survival activities. Can they Minecraft in the real world? This is a challenge for STEAM outdoors!
