“This Minecraft camp was a great experience for my child, who aspires to be a video game designer. Very impressive!”
Minecraft, a “sandbox” game by Mojang based on building blocks, has taken the world by storm as one of the top-selling PC games of all time—over 100 million people have registered worldwide. Players traverse vast landscapes of mountains, forests, caves, and various water bodies. Their characters hunt, sail, and farm while constructing homes and objects by breaking and placing textured cubes in a 3D world. It is the epitome of creativity—limitless opportunity to build, discover, and problem-solve.
In recent years, the benefits of Minecraft have come to light, with the game gaining traction as an educational tool—acknowledged by many as an important vehicle for engaging kids and teens in STEM fields such as coding, video game design and development, level design, and more.
Typically, kids and teens play Minecraft at home with little to no direction or goals in mind. At iD Tech, students approach gameplay from a new angle and are empowered to discover the underlying mechanics of the game in a collaborative environment.
Beginner to advanced students in our Minecraft summer camps learn how to think critically about their work with the infinite possibilities of the game. Students create themes, storylines, dialogue between characters, objectives, goals, and more, while more experienced players delve deeper into game design & development, modding, and level design.
