We will dive into the world of Minecraft, a popular gaming module for young kids to work with.

This piece of coding will help get the students acquainted with the different types of codes and will be the easiest of the three days. It's a great starting point. Day 2: Minecraft Adventurer. In this coding game, students will code for Steve or Alex to explore the world of Minecraft. Day 3: Minecraft Voyage Aquatic. Today we will be coding underwater sequences!
There is NO homework for this camp, however, there will be coding lessons that we will not be able to complete in class. The coding takes about an hour, so once we are done, students can continue the coding on his/her own at that time or come back to it. Happy coding!!
