In computer science, a “function” is a way to group commands together. For example, the function of Waving might group the following commands together:
Move hand left
Move hand right
This program requires basic proficiency with computers and some prior experience with Minecraft.
Like all EduMEE programs, this class offers a project-based, exploratory classroom environment that sits at the intersection of learning and playing. After all, kids learn the most when they’re having fun!
Learn about functions in computer science.
In this session you will:
- Students will create functions that help them accomplish a task in Minecraft.
- Students will work in pairs to create a helpful function for Minecraft.
Students will be exploring concepts of Art & Design, and Technology while playing a game of Minecraft. A US State-certified teacher will be guiding students through the lesson and posing guiding questions. Some of the 21st-century skills being taught are creativity and critical thinking.
This is a 1.5-hour course that balances discussion time with plenty of hands-on experience so students can cement what they’re learning and explore the topics they’re interested in. We combine Minecraft with education so your child can engage their passions as they learn in a positive, interest-driven environment. Please note that we will be providing all students with a username and Minecraft Education Account so that we can add them to our safelist. Students will also be checking in via MS Teams so we can have audio and video contact. Once video confirmation has been established students can turn off the camera and just use audio for communication during the game.
