Minecraft with JavaScript

Early Release Fridays:

  • February 16
  • 12:00-3:15 pm
  • $65/student
  • Ages 8-14

Explore one of the most commonly used computer coding languages, JavaScript, as you build Minecraft structures and automate routine mining in a custom Minecraft world! Students learn to code and program automated characters to use in their mining and building, while learning syntax, logic, coding vocabulary, methods, and more. Students will learn and explore loops, decision-making, and variable commands. All students will work 1:1 on laptops or Chromebooks, while also practicing collaboration and teamwork with other classmates. Teacher controls the custom world that the students are in, and the students do not interact online with other individuals outside the classroom.
New learners welcome - no prior coding experience necessary!

Course Content:

  • Learn basic JavaScript syntax
  • Code characters and functions in the Minecraft world
  • Extend your JavaScript knowledge

Our classes use an intranet that we bring in, for a special version of the game developed specifically for educational use. It’s just as engaging for students as the core game, but with added features and controls for classrooms, such as secure student login IDs, teacher control over the participants, and editable boundaries.
