MINECRAFT

KIDS (AGES 7–12)

Everyone loves Minecraft. Yet, very few players get the opportunity to work with a team, recreating real-life, large-scale projects. Now is that chance! In this creative and collaborative program, students will become part of a Minecraft Build Team learning the process of using real-world analysis and measurements and translating them into a dynamic and interactive Minecraft structure. From design process to final build, the students will explore and create, practice critical thinking skills, and test logic skills as they word together to create a fully functioning and aesthetically pleasing world. Whether a student is a veteran or new to the game, there are new experiences and uncharted territories waiting for them. Come get hands-on experience and take your Minecraft skills to the next level.

WHO IS THIS FOR?
Youth looking to expand their Minecraft knowledge and hone game design skills

LOCATION

What if my child can't start by the start date?

Our programs are comprehensive, meaning that they cover a lot of material during its duration. The programs run from September 2017 to May 2018. If you cannot start at the beginning of the term, there are other opportunities to join us in our Workshops and Summer Camps.

If the program I want is full, is there a waiting list?

For those sessions that are already full, we will maintain a waiting list. To get into the waiting list, you must complete an online application indicating the session in which you are interested.  As spaces become available, the first name in the waiting list will be called to offer the space. 

What if my child misses a session(s)?

If your child has to miss class because of vacation or other commitment, we’ll arrange for you to come at another time to make up the hours for that month. 

Can I drop-off and pick-up?

Yes, but you will need to sign the children in and let us know who is picking them up. At the time of pick-up, our staff will ask for ID to match the name you provided at drop-off. You can also wait and relax in the comfort of the parents’ lounge area.
