Explore Minecraft with 15 of your peers while improving your creative, collaborative, and problem-solving skills. This club, intended for kids ages 8–12, will create a world from scratch in Minecraft's Survival Mode. Learn how to work together to collect resources, craft tools, build structures, and survive the hostile mobs of Creepers and skeletons that spawn at night!
The group will play on MinecraftEdu, a version of Minecraft tailored specifically toward school-age children, with a librarian administrating and guiding the server session. This version assures parents, teachers, and librarians of children’s safety and privacy, as the server is closed to outside users. Participants do not have to have their own Minecraft license or computer; the Library will provide these. Each weekly meeting of the club will also include a 10-minute lesson on a variety of technology themes.
Each Minecraft Tech Club registration consists of an 8-week session in which club members work together to build a new world from scratch. The next session starts September 8 and runs through October 27. Space is limited. Registration is required and opens on September 2 at 10am. Register by calling the Day-Riverside Branch at 801-594-8632. Registrants will not be able to use their personal Minecraft License, will not be able to access Creative Mode, including any related Mods, Skins, or Worlds, and will not be able to access their personal Minecraft Account username or profile.
