JUNIOR ARCHITECT WITH MINECRAFT
7+ to 12 years old
Architect + Minecraft = Awesome designing experience! Our Junior Architects will be building different structures and projects in Minecraft Creative mode while learning about architectural theories and styles from around the world!
In each 4-term (8 sessions a term), explorers will be exposed to different building themes with mini-lessons on some real-world architectural examples shared by our coach!
Through projects like building a hotel, or constructing a roller coaster ride, explorers will apply some mathematical and science concepts as they plan out their floor plans or calculate the height of their roller coasters! They will also learn about the history and transformation of architecture from ancient times to modern days and how different cultures have influenced these designs!
Explorers will be given a rubric with the important architectural and historical elements to include in their build. They will share photos of their completed projects with us and the rest of their class!
Everyone loves Minecraft and as a parent, you might have heard it from your children too! Besides being a computer game, we use this versatile platform to create learning experiences for our explorers! Besides developing competencies such as creativity and problem solving, we deepen our explorers' academic knowledge in Math and general knowledge as they apply them to construct and build in Minecraft!
