Coding in Minecraft with LUA

March 29 – May 3, 2021: 6 week session

Mondays: 4:30pm – 5:30pm

$144

Minimum of 5 children to have the class.

Ages: 6-9

Software: Minecraft Skill Level: Beg.-Int.
Using a custom mod called “Computercraft”, students will learn
how to program robots called “Turtles” inside the world of
Minecraft. Kids will utilize problem-solving skills by learning how to
program their robots to complete various tasks and objectives such
as programming their turtles to automatically build, mine, and craft
items and structures. They will be introduced to programming
if-then-else statements, for-while loops, and implement their own
functions using Lua, a simple scripting language. Looking for a fun
way to introduce your child to programming? Why not do it using a
game they love!
Note: Basic reading skills required. Experience playing Minecraft
preferred, but not required. Please email us for details.

Saturdays: 9am – 10am

$144

Minimum of 5 children to have the class.

Ages: 6-9

Software: Scratch 2.0 Skill Level: Beg.-Int.
Introduce your child to the wonderful world of programming! In
this class, students will learn basic programming concepts
using a simple drag-and-drop interface within the software
Scratch, a project developed by the MIT Media Lab. Students
will use their imaginations and implement creative thinking,
while at the same time learning how to create and program
simple games. Use pre made art assets or create your own,
and learn how to program them, to walk, talk, and interact with
objects.Teach students logic and visual programming in order
to create simple, 2D Video Game in Scratch 2.

  • no class on April 3

Saturdays: 10:15am – 11:15am

$144

Minimum of 5 children to have the class.

Ages: 10-14

 Software: Scratch 2
In this course students will learn basic programming and logic
flow and learn how to apply those concepts to create games.
Using Scratch, a scripting language developed by MIT to give
kids an easy entry into coding, students will go through the
iterative process of creating a program or game from idea to
completion. Successful students in this class will have several
completed 2D games they will be able to play and show off on
most computers and will have mastered the skills they need to
continue making games using scratch at home.
