Many people working in tech today got their start building with LEGO and SimCity. Today there’s Minecraft. Using blocks, kids can build just about anything in a virtual world. It’s being used in classrooms all across the U.S. to help kids discover engineering concepts, geography, architecture, mathematics, as well as critical thinking skills and teamwork. Here’s how:
Kids can explore the fundamentals of architecture by building their own dream homes.
An in-game feature called Redstone works like real-world electrical circuits and is perfect for showing how electronics work.
Kids build their own themed game worlds inside Minecraft called adventure maps. They discover variations in landforms, and geographical populations, and practice their spatial skills.
To play with friends on Minecraft, players join servers or make their own! Kids can collaborate on larger projects from roller coasters to Rube Goldberg Machines.
