Minecraft modding refers to being able to create mods (short for modification) to the Minecraft game. By running a specialized Minecraft server, it supports injecting code to do things such as program a "drone" to build a fancy tower, give yourself superpowers, and create minigames like parkour or TNT Run.
They should know the basics of typing. Because it uses a block-based approach, typing is much less compared to a traditional programming language. Use this as an opportunity to improve touch typing and getting familiar with all the keys on the keyboard.
No. There is no coding experienced required. It is recommended that they know the basics of typing.
All of our instructors go through our curriculum and are typically college students majoring in computer science or adults working in the software industry with experience teaching or tutoring youths.
The class is instructor-led so we will guide you step-by-step. WhizKidz uses a learn-by-example approach. We show you simple examples and best practices. We encourage and foster hands-on experimentation. The class is project-based, meaning students will design and implement many creative and unique projects in all of our courses.
No, but Minecraft Modding is so unique and fun that we encourage you to experiment and learn on your own time in between classes. Sometimes we might suggest challenges or improvements to an existing project that you can try after class.
It definitely works as we have seen successful results since March of 2020. Because we developed the EpicMC Blockly coding platform, the instructor has admin access to view a project, making it easier to help a student.
You need an Internet connection and a computer. You only need to install the Minecraft client software. We will provide a Minecraft license for the duration of the class if you don't have your own.
You can get full credit on the remaining classes that you haven't taken.
If you haven't taken Scratch yet, that could be the next series. We also have the MIT App Inventor Series that teaches you how to create mobile apps, specifically for the Android phones and tablets. It also uses Google Blockly so the user interface will look somewhat familiar.
There are also a couple of Roblox Studio courses and one on Machine Learning Applications that teaches supervised machine learning in a friendly and easy-to-understand manner, and using a variation of Scratch to accomplish this.
