Post-Camp Info: Minecraft Coding

Post-Camp Info: Minecraft Coding

Thank you for joining us for a wonderful week in Minecraft Coding Tech Camp. Campers who take part in our Minecraft coding camps have many options for continuing to code outside of camp. Below you will find Minecraft Educational Resources that can help you continue your Minecraft Education.

Resource: Minecraft – Education Edition

In our Minecraft Coding camps, we use the Minecraft Education Edition and MakeCode Connection. In combination, these Minecraft Educational Resources allow kids to use code to change the Minecraft environment. Kids use MakeCode to make programs, create mini-games, and automate farming. The Minecraft Education Edition is used to help code environments. What is great, kids can play Minecraft with the education edition just like the original version of Minecraft.

To pursue using Minecraft Education at home:

  1. Check if your child’s school offers a free version of Minecraft Education EditionIf your school has already purchased Minecraft Education Edition, you can download the software and use a school license. You can also ask your school technology specialist to find out if they have a license you can use.
  2. If you do not have access to a school account of Minecraft Education Edition, you can purchase a one-year subscription to your own Minecraft Education Edition account through us at Classroom Antics.
    • Cost is $120 / year
    • Call 800-595-3776 to purchase the license
    • You will be provided with login information and directions on how to download Minecraft Education
  3. Once installed, your child is ready to begin coding in Minecraft!s

Minecraft Lesson Plans

Kids can continue their learning with lesson plans provided by Microsoft educators. Many lesson plans are available but can be filtered by age-appropriate lesson plans and subjects of interest.

Books are a Great Minecraft Educational Resource

There are many books dedicated to Minecraft. We recommend these two because of their tips & tricks and the use of Redstone.
