Guiding ideasIn Minecraft: Education Edition, the Agent is your own personal Robot! You can create programs to make him move, build or dig for you in the game. In this lesson, we will create basic commands we can use for our Agent. To do this, we will use a special event in Microsoft MakeCode called the “On Chat Command” which is a useful way to teach students about functions. In computer science, a “function” is a way to group commands together. For example, the function of Waving might group the following commands together:
- Raise hand
- Move hand left
- Move hand rightIn this case, we will be creating some On Chat Commands that will tell our Agent what to do. Students can type the name of their functions into the Minecraft game to execute that function.
- Ask your students how would you add height to their existent structure?
- Ask students to change the shape of the structure. What changes to the existing code would they have to make to create a rectangle for example?

I was born in Wyoming and was very involved in sports. I was participated in choir and band along with theater. After graduation I didn’t want to go to college at the University like my classmates, so I went to Casper College and majored in music. I thought I could be a performance major and after I received my Associates, I flew to Los Angeles and attended Azusa Pacific University. Then reality hit and I saw how many people had amazing voices and a lot of money. I knew that I had to face reality and my mother was an incredible teacher. I kept thinking of the difference she made in not only kids but families lives. I decided to go back to the University of Wyoming (I couldn’t keep scrubbing toilets at 3:00 a.m. so I could go to school) and changed my major to Music Education. Because I changed my major, it did cost me another year, but I did love going to school at U.W. and did quite well. I did my Student Teaching at a Jr. High in Gillette, Wyoming with one of the most dynamic choir teachers I have ever seen. I learned a lot. I began teaching in Arizona as a K-6 General Music teacher and 4th through 8th grade Band Instructor. That was rough. I had to learn a lot about myself, my strengths, my weaknesses but I think it was probably what made me understand different cultures and teaching poverty. I taught for two years in Arizona and then moved back to Wyoming to teach Choir at a Jr. High. I taught choir and coached 3 sports for about 12 years before I decided I needed a change, so I went back to school while teaching and then started teaching computer classes, both Career and Computer Science. I also was the Yearbook advisor and FBLA advisor at my Jr. High school until I retired this past year.
