This workshop has come and gone. Check out our latest workshop, Make Your Own Haunted House Adventure in Scratch. We will have another one soon, so please sign up for our newsletter for updates! View the Educational Outcomes of this Workshop. Minecraft in Education This workshop is for the girls! Play Minecraft and learn logic skills while doing it. It’s a bit like hiding peas in the mac and cheese. Girls, ages 8+, love it because they are creating theme-park like rides in Minecraft. You’ll love it because they are learning the fundamental logic structures behind programming and engineering while they are doing it. Are you interested in hanging out too and learning what in the world your kids are doing while they play Minecraft? No problem, adults, just get an extra ticket for yourself, and let us know you’re tagging along. Proudly offered by We Can Code It, with support from Bizdom Cleveland, we’ll provide fun instruction, donuts, and juice for the girls. You provide a computer (let us know if you need to borrow one when you get your tickets, and we’ll set you up). [one_half] Girls Make an amusement park in Minecraft! Make a dunk tank! Create a photo booth! Make a Minecraft Roller Coaster! [/one_half][one_half_last] Adults Feel free to get a ticket for yourself if you’d like. Your girls will be learning logic structures that help them in all walks of life, but also form a strong foundational understanding for engineering and programming!
