Each client is a company (supermarket chain, football franchise, bank etc...) that is looking for a specific type of skyscraper or building complex to be built with a specific architectural style and certain requirements.

Students will have optional bonus work they can do between Weeks 2 and 6.
Students will need to download Minetest, the free public domain version of Minecraft. This is a free program and has worked really great for our purposes. We provide technical support as you download the program. They will also need to use Google Sheets, although they don't necessarily need a Google account to do this.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
