PLAY AND CODE WITH MINECRAFT

(FINALIST 2019) Using computer games to teach computer programming to children.

The aim of this project is to provide extra-curricular classes in computer science, in all primary schools in Rzeszów. The subject of these classes will be to learn programming based on one of the most popular Minecraft games in the world – Education Edition, which is in fact an educational tool using a popular game as part of the teaching process.

Several dozen computer science teachers from Rzeszów primary schools have already been trained in how to use Minecraft during classes. During the workshops, the teachers learned how to use the game to teach programming to children. Programming is a key skill in the modern world, but it is difficult to master, so it must be taught in a way that is attractive for the students.
