3D Minecraft Modding II: Program Your Own Mods

Minecraft is a 3D open world sandbox game, where the students can explore the environment and create their own mods using a platform called LearnToMod. This platform uses Block-Based Coding to create modification using code which can be used on their server by friends and family. In this course, students learn about how Minecraft works and how the game can be manipulated using code. Students are introduced to programming concepts which can be used not only in Minecraft, but even when programming more complex items. They learn how a piece of code can manipulate a whole game using problem solving skills and creativity to create things. This course will enable students to create their own mods. Through the process of modding, students will be able to express themselves and share their world with others and show them things that use existing material and items already in Minecraft and even learn to make their own creations. This level also bring an introduction to the programming language of Javascript towards the end of the course.
