Learn all about Minecraft Servers.

So you’ve played Minecraft on your own, with friends or on popular servers but do you ever wonder how these wonderful games you enjoy playing so much are made and distributed? In this course, you will not only learn how to build these games, but also host them on servers so your friends can join in and play the game you’ve coded.

We will start off by exploring aspects of game development and programming within a new environment, to practise and reinforce programming concepts learnt from our introductory courses.

We’ll apply the familiar concepts of loops, conditionals and events to create our games. We will also develop your understanding of what happens when games are deployed on servers for other people to access them. A brief history of Minecraft will also explored, through educational games and quizzes.

Now, mod your Mindcraft!

Minecraft provides an immersive 3D environment for kids to develop their programming and game development skills.

Kids can build ‘mods’ (short for modifications) that change the way the game behaves and responds. They will learn how to create their own world, build games within a game and even have a go at playing what they created with their friends in Minecraft!

They’ll build their own Minecraft mods using a drag-and-drop editor on the Code Kingdoms platform. While creating these mods, kids will improve their understanding of core programming and computational thinking concepts, and use their creativity and imagination to make their very own world to play in.

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

Parents love us

The happiest hours of your child's week

"Oli totally enjoyed himself. He also told me how precise he needed to be when writing a code for a robot.... something he remembers from his first coding course. I appreciate how this course shows the higher purpose of computers to young minds."

"He loved it so much so that he wants to stay back after class ended to continue his work!! Small class size, so it was really engaging for him."

Have a look behind the scenes

Your kid will love it.

If your kid doesn't think it's the best thing ever after attending the first 2 days of holiday camps (or first 3 weeks of term classes), and would like to withdraw, we'll issue you a 50% credit note of the amount paid.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. My child is new to computers and programming. Will he / she be able to follow?

We recommend that your child completes our Start With Scratch course for a solid foundation in Scratch and programming concepts first, and has played Minecraft before enrolling in this course.

 

2. Does my child need to have a Minecraft account in advance?

Yes! If he/she does not have one, you can register for a new account here: Minecraft Account Registration. You’ll need to register for the paid account of the PC/Mac Java Edition, not the Pocket edition. Note that every child will need to have their own account (siblings will not be able to log into the same account on different laptops during the same class)

 

3. Will my child be able to continue modding at home?

To continue creating Minecraft mods at home, your child will need to subscribe to the coding platform – Code Kingdoms. If you’d like to subscribe, we do offer a 20% discount on Code Kingdom’s 12 months or lifetime membership in our end of course email that will be sent to you. Do refer to that email for more details.

 

4. I’ve enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?

Bring along your Minecraft username and password. We’ll provide all equipment and materials, but you may want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case he/she gets hungry.
