Maine Robotics Camp Program
With over 100,000,000 registered users, and over 34,000,000 paid computer users and another 30,000,000 paid mobile users, Minecraft has become one of the worlds top games, and certainly the top creative game. There are almost 1,000,000 people playing Minecraft at any moment! You probably know lots of people who spend time creating houses, roads, towns, mines, as well as gather experience points by battling monsters (mobs).
But what if you could start learning how to change what you are doing, not just playing with what the game comes with? In the Programming in Minecraft Camp we will be using the MinecraftEDU software and Tynker software to start learning how to modify the gaming environment.
Will there be time to "just play the game?", yes, but the focus will be on learning new skills that relate to programming in the environment.
The program is offered this summer in Falmouth, Portland, Augusta, and in Bangor.
Do you need to have a Minecraft account? No, but you should bring your login information with you if you have an account so you can play as yourself.
NOTE: Maine Robotics is not affiliated with MineCraft, MineCraftEDU or Tynker.
This year's prices are up a little from last year, this is due to increases in the cost of the software we use at the camps. Campers will be using and going home with a 3 month license for the Tynker Minecraft mod.
