Explore inventing, circuits and engineering concepts in Minecraft! We'll use Redstone (an electrical power source) to build fun electrical devices, like a TNT cannon. Any version of Minecraft can be used! (STEM / STEAM Summer Camp) #builder

Class experience

4 lessons//1 Week
 Week 1
Lesson 1
Session 1
- Comparison with real-life power sources, conductive materials and electrical components - Building powered redstone lamps with redstone dust. Using different power sources to turn on the lamps (redstone torch, lever, button, pressure plate) - Understanding the distance that the power can travel (in blocks) - Understanding how Redstone power is distributed - Build a light-up dance floor with Redstone lamps and pressure plates
Lesson 2
Session 2
- Using power sources: redstone block, target - Building powered door, bell, fence gate and trap door - Build a Redstone cannon that fires a block of TNT - Build an archery skills challenge course that triggers different Redstone contraptions
Lesson 3
Session 3
- How to hide Redstone Circuits - Using transmission material: redstone repeater - Building constructions with a piston and sticky piston - Build an automated melon farm harvester and cane sugar harvester using pistons
Lesson 4
Session 4
- Building constructions with rails, powered rails and activator rails - Adding minecarts - Build an amusement park featuring different Redstone-powered activities
The course focuses on hands-on experimentation with a wide variety of Redstone Power Sources, Transmission Material and Powered Components, which students can use to build their own Redstone creations. 

Session 1: 
- What is Redstone? It's electricity in Minecraft! Redstone engineering consists of a power source, a transmission material, and a wide range of components that react to the current. 
- Comparison with real-life power sources, conductive materials and electrical components
- Building powered redstone lamps with redstone dust. Using different power sources to turn on the lamps (redstone torch, lever, button, pressure plate)
- Understanding the distance that the power can travel (in blocks)
- Understanding how Redstone power is distributed 
- Build a light-up dance floor with Redstone lamps and pressure plates
- Build a lamp post that lights up automatically at night using an inverted Daylight Detector

Session 2: 
- Using power sources: redstone block, target
- Building powered door, bell, fence gate and trap door
- Build a Redstone cannon that fires a block of TNT
- Build an archery skills challenge course that triggers different Redstone contraptions

Session 3:
- How to hide Redstone Circuits
- Using transmission material: redstone repeater
- Building constructions with a piston and sticky piston
- Build an automated melon farm harvester and cane sugar harvester using pistons

Session 4:
- Building constructions with rails, powered rails and activator rails
- Adding minecarts
- Build an amusement park featuring different Redstone-powered activities
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool. 
Students must have access to Minecraft (any version) for use during the class time. (Please note: A license of Minecraft is not included with this course). 

In addition, students will need to be able to access Zoom and Minecraft simultaneously, either by utilizing a second device, or by having both Zoom and Minecraft windows visible on the same screen. Students should already know the basics of using Minecraft, including the basics of how to use a crafting table and how to access their inventory. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
To participate in this course, students must have access to Minecraft for use during class time (any version of Minecraft is fine, including Java Edition, Minecraft Bedrock Edition for Windows, iPad, Nintendo Switch, PS4 or Minecraft Education Edition). Links to download Minecraft are listed under third party tools. Note: Education Edition can usually only be purchased by a school, so if your learner does not have Minecraft Education Education through their school, we recommend getting Minecraft Java Edition or Minecraft for Windows 10, or Minecraft for iPad, Nintendo Switch or PS4. 

Please note: A license of Minecraft is not included with this course.
