The robots are coming, the robots are coming! No, the robots are not taking over the world, but they are taking over the world of Minecraft. If your child is passionate about Minecraft and interested in learning more about how robots are programmed, then this is THE camp for them. Students will learn how to use drag-and-drop programming inside the game of Minecraft to make their Minecraft robots perform some crazy tasks. At the end of the camp, students will have programmed their robots to make their Minecraft life easier! This is a perfect starting point for students to learn the basics of computer programming. It is so much fun your child will not even know they are learning!

Technology Used

Our primary technology in our Minecraft Programming Camp is the popular game Minecraft! Minecraft is a great educational tool in it's own right and it's even better with the help of the ComputerCraftEDU Minecraft mod. This mod adds computer programming aspects to the game of Minecraft through programmable turtle robots. It's a fun way to teach students computer science!

QUESTIONS WE GET FROM TIME TO TIME

Questions and Answers

Do you allow age exceptions?

Learn Create Build isn't about strict age requirements. Every child can be at a different level and we don't want to exclude children from becoming part of a camp they want to attend. However, we do outline age guidelines on all of our camps. These are guidelines and not rules. If you are wondering if your child an handle a particular camp please contact us at hello@learncreatebuild.com to get a better idea of what to expect at camp. Also, on each camp page, there is a requirements section that describes what camp participants should be able to do independently. Use this as a guide to see if your child has the skills necessary to complete the tasks of the camp her or she is interested in.

Do you offer financial aid or scholarships?

Unfortunately, at the time there is no financial aid or scholarship opportunities available through Learn Create Build. Depending on location and camp, we will occasionally have universities and nonprofit organizations offer scholarships to their local communities. If this is made available to us we will post these opportunities to our mailing list.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

You can learn more about our policy by checking out the cancellation/refund policy page here.

When is the last day to register for a camp?

Learn Create Build will allow students to join a camp up until the day before the start of a camp. However, waiting until the last day can be risky as most camps will fill up. If a camp is sold out, there is no guarantee more spots will be open.
