Minecraft is one of the most popular games among children. For children who love this game, this course is a wonderful opportunity to learn something that none of their friends can do, Code with Minecraft.
Minecraft is a sandbox game with a real-life-like scenario where children learn to build, design and work as a team. In this course, students will learn to create “Mods” or in other words, make changes to the game by the use of Codes. Which means, first they will learn coding and then apply it to make changes to their favorite game.
Students will begin with learning the basics of game design. The will be advancing in the course by learning to create their own 3D objects inside the game and control them using their own Codes. At Tiny Code, we use an online cloud based platform where our students can save and share their codes or “Mods” with their friends. Our students will also learn to create their Own Server for Minecraft and apply their Codes or “Mods” on the servers.
