Join us to do creative builds in the world of Minecraft for Education. Our flagship program of “A Virtual sustainable St. Paul” covers important sustainability concepts applied to smart homes, alternate sources of power, smart farms, recycling centers and wastewater treatment facilities. Furthermore, kids get to build their own international space station or try to survive on Mars. We instill important concepts of Maths, Science and Engineering through the world of Minecraft.
Minecraft for Education Benefits

Minecraft is a game that requires players to solve problems and challenges in order to progress. This can help children develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Minecraft is often played in multiplayer mode, which means that children can work together to build and achieve their goals. This can help them develop their collaboration and teamwork skills.
Minecraft has a feature called “redstone” that allows players to create circuits and machines using logic gates. This can help children develop their coding skills and learn about programming concepts.
