Minecraft is one of the most popular video games. Minecraft enable players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. MinecraftEDU allows students to not only play but build levels, design and use problem solving skills. Many schools are using MinecraftEDU for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) learning. Students will be taught building basics through gameplay, building adventure maps, and resource packs. Advance minecrafters will learn Java programming language to create and participate in 3D design challenges.
