Minecraft® Machine Marvels
* We use Minecraft Edu in class, similar to the home version, but with classroom management and student moderation tools.
* Laptops are connected to our own local network, and not connected to the Internet.
* Students’ projects, resource files and software will be available for download from our website a week after the completion of the course.
Ages 8 and up Prereq: Minecraft experience
You will be creating contraptions with items such as pistons, pressure-plates, levels, buttons, trip wire, lava, water, doors, dispenser, TNT and redstone. The teacher will provide guidelines on how to build some simple machines. These simple machines will be connected to create an entertaining “Rube Goldberg” machine. In addition to learning about action and reaction, transfer of energy, this course will also showcase the students’ logical ability as well as creativity.
