Frequently Asked Questions

Using Java, kids can create command blocks - which are sets of instructions - in order to add a customized feature or action to existing gameplay. For example, different command blocks can change the weather, allow players to teleport, and more!

The learning benefits of Minecraft are as endless as the world itself. From game design, to coding, to activating kids’ creativity and critical thinking skills, Minecraft offers a wealth of learning opportunities beyond hours of entertainment.

If your child loves to build and interact with Minecraft, they’re steps away from becoming game designer! Making the transition from playing Minecraft to thinking critically about the game is one of the best ways to encourage young kids to pursue STEM in school, college, and beyond. 

Absolutely! Because our Online Private Lessons are 1-on-1 with an instructor, the curriculum is customized to meet your child's skill level, unique interests, and long-term goals. Whether they are just starting out or super advanced, our experienced instructors will engage them to bring out their best!

Our Online Private Lessons offer live, 1-on-1 learning with an experienced, USA-based instructor and curriculum tailored to your child's interests and skill level! Once you select a topic and purchase a lesson package, you can easily choose your instructor and schedule a 60-minute lesson for the date and time that works best for you.  

Once scheduled, you can share notes about your child and any specific goals they might have. When it's time for their lesson, your child will connect with their instructor via Zoom. You will receive a post-session progress report via email so you can track your child's success! 

Each child will need a Windows or Mac computer with audio and video capabilities. We do not recommend tablets or Chromebooks, as the multi-tasking ability between Zoom and other required software is often unreliable or nonexistent.
