In our most popular course, kids ages 8-14 learn real Java programming as they design and code modifications (a.k.a. Mods) to Minecraft — including swords, tools, blocks, foods, biomes, achievements, mobs and more — that can be played and shared with friends.
Kids will learn:
• Java coding
• Computer programming
• Eclipse, pro-level Java development suite (included)
Our mission is to teach kids real coding and design skills by creating awesome projects with cutting-edge technology. In this online course, kids learn the fundamentals of real Java programming by creating their own Minecraft Mod for the PC/Mac version of Minecraft. For every item, block, or creature they want to add, kids will first design and then code their object in Java. At the end of the course, they will have their own polished Mod that they created from scratch.
In the process of creating their own Mod, kids will learn the most important concepts of object-oriented computer programming — such as how to instantiate new objects, call methods, define parameters, and run loops — all in the service of adding new features and functionality to their final project.
Mod Design 1 is a unique opportunity for young students to learn Java in an exciting and meaningful way. They will not only come away with an impressive project to share with their friends, but also with a foundational knowledge of object-oriented programming.
Fun, Interactive & Rewarding!
Youth Digital is never boring. On the contrary, students watch videos, respond to questions, earn badges, and complete quizzes and challenging assignments. Out technology education classes are highly interactive and engaging.
