About this course

Students at elementary to middle school grades are introduced to new themes throughout the course where they build, as a group, a continued world using the innovative tools from M:EE. Each theme is fully explored with assignments in between classes. Selected mods and 3rd party editing tools like Tynker are introduced and taught throughout to augment student skills towards completed worlds. The first hour of the class is devoted to building and developing a finished world with the final 30 minutes of collaborative and good-natured play--students play within several of their favourite minigames including Bedwars and Hide-and-Seek.
