Post-Camp Info: STEAM Makers

Thank you for joining us for a wonderful week in STEAM Makers camp! At Classroom Antics, we believe that ongoing learning is very important. This is why we wanted to provide you some really great learning resources that can keep your child engaged in creative building.

Engineering with 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!

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.


LEGO Resources

If you already have LEGO in bulk at home, get inspiration from the TV show, LEGO Masters. The adult version is very challenging, but you can simplify this for home using kid rules and your imagination.


Don’t have enough LEGO? We found our loose, bulk LEGO pieces by the pound on a public marketplace. On average, loose, bulk LEGO pieces sell for $10/lb. I always searched for a lesser price, or offered less. People are willing to negotiate in these public marketplaces. Just be sure to meet in a public place like a police station when meeting with someone you don’t know.
