with Cody Hutcheson

Calendar Next session starts Jun 24, 2019 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

You’ve bested creepers, traveled deep into caves, and maybe even gone to The End and back—but have you ever transformed a sword into a magic wand? Built structures in the blink of an eye? In this camp, students will manipulate Minecraft with the power of Python, a free programming language used by millions of professional and first-time programmers!

Students in grade 6 and up will begin with some short, simple Python lessons and then use these new skills to modify Minecraft to produce instant and totally awesome results. Learn how to customize Minecraft, duplicate entire buildings, and manipulate blocks. Students will see Minecraft in a whole new light while learning the basics of programming.

Basic keyboarding proficiency is REQUIRED. 30 wpm recommended. 20 wpm required. 20 wpm is minimal typing speed that most students in this age group should be able to achieve with a few weeks of basic touchtyping practice. TypingTest.com is a free online resource you can use to assess your child's typing speed. 

Campers registering for both a morning and afternoon program are invited to remain for lunch supervision at no extra charge. Such students should bring a sack lunch. Snacks are provided during camp, but students are invited to bring their own snacks to meet their personal dietary restrictions if necessary.
