In this beginner course, Skill Samurai provides foundational computer science training using Java and Minecraft. Covering key coding concepts such as basic conditional statements, loops, and functions, we build a series of progressively more rigorous projects that provide a solid foundation in Java programming. Students will build a number of custom mods including swords, blocks, ores.
Skill Samurai’s research-based, project based learning (PBL) approach to Minecraft 1 keeps the learning fun and engaging, while ensuring a solid foundation in CS.
Upon completion of Minecraft 1 Core, students will be ready to advance to Minecraft 2 Core.
