How are the most popular games structured? Kids will activate their critical thinking skills and creativity as they answer those questions. From game design, to coding and more, Minecraft offers a wealth of learning opportunities above and 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.
