Q Academy’s Minecraft kid’s camps combine learning and gaming while adding in the social elements of being in a group environment. Through face to face interaction and some real-world building activities, your child will have tons of fun.

Minecraft is a sandbox construction game made up of two modes: Survival and Creative. Survival requires thought and preparation in order to prosper in a world brimming with dangers and challenges, while Creative mode gives players unlimited access to all in-game items to build and customize their 3-Dimensional environment.

Our Campers will be required to work as a team to build a thriving community within Survival Mode. In Creative Mode, they will learn basic architecture and geometry to improve their building ability and better grasp dimension and perspective. They will also get a glimpse into the creation of pixel art and how to use Minecraft as a form of digital painting.

This camp is for beginners and those already playing the game.

Campers will be using a gaming software to recreate a short video game. The program is designed for children, and teaches them the basics of programing as they create animated stories, video games, and interactive artwork.

Using colorful programming blocks, campers drag and “drop” together the blocks to make a character a Sprite walk, play music, or interact with other sprites.

Since computer programming is considered the new literacy, young people now have an opportunity to put together multimedia programs without any previous programming knowledge. As children create with the program, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and have fun while learning.

This camp is for students that completed Learn to Code 101 and 102 or previous coding skills.
