What happens? 

Minecraft Club will consist of two hours of exploring and building in minecraft worlds and experimenting with a few Mods. Some weeks students will take on art projects inside Minecraft, other weeks students will explore prebuilt worlds, and some weeks we will introduce Mods that bring new features to the game. Mods bring a new dimension to the game that can't be experienced on a console or mobile device.  Exploring Minecraft as part of a group brings an entirely different dimension to Minecraft as students make new friends and tackle new challenges. ages 8 to 13. To sign up visit our registration page.  Students with special needs who need a smaller class size way wish to explore our options at Kidsability. Students must stay with the group in the classroom and follow teachers instructions to stay in the class.
