Explore the world of Minecraft! In this freeform course, students pick their own goals and work towards them together. A modpack is chosen by the group and the students explore it in their own time. This could involve transforming themselves into monsters, destroying pillager outposts and raids, heading to the moon and beyond.
A highly structured course aimed to bridge Minecraft Exploration and our programming courses. Students start creating a fairly standard Minecraft base, then utilise redstone and some of the tools provided by mods to automate it.
