FHPL Minecraft Class — Ages 9 - 18
About the Game Minecraft is a “sandbox” game by Mojang based on building blocks. It 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 blocks in a 3D world. The goal is to survive, or simply invent. Most anything imaginable can be performed in Minecraft. It is the epitome of creativity — limitless opportunity to build, discover, and problem-solve. In recent years, the game has gained traction as an educational tool, acknowledged by many as an important vehicle for engaging kids and teens in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields such as programming, video game design & development.
