Minecraft Inventions

Learn coding, logic & circuit design as you build traps, puzzles & machines

Minecraft is great fun, but did you know it’s the perfect platform to learn about logic, machines and digital circuitry as well?  With Redstone you can create your own gadgets and inventions from secret floor traps to puzzles and dispensers.  This is the ultimate experience in collaborative creativity as you’ll be designing in a virtual world with others in your class on our server.  This means that you can work in your own area or explore someone else’s designs, or even work together to build something amazing.

N.B. You must have a paid version of Minecraft Java Edition which is around £18

Our Tutors

We've brought together the best of our tutors to instruct and help the students. They're typically recent graduates or undergraduates studying Engineering or Computer Science at leading Russell-group Universities. Of course they're chosen for their communication and technical skills and have Enhanced DBS checks for working with children.

Our Sessions
Engaging learning must be hands-on. Our 'At Home' programme offer a mix of video tutoring, collaborative learning and self-paced project work during and after the session to make sure that learning is deep, engaging and lasting.

My child has no prior experience - can they still attend?
Yes! We don't assume any prior knowledge for our courses.  The only exception is if when we run followup courses that are labelled as 'Advanced' or 'Level 2' that normally require the prior course to have been taken.  Do ask if you're unsure.
Five Stars The online course was great and the tutor engaged with the children and helped them calmly and effectively - we were not needed at all. My son really enjoyed the course and did all of the extra challenges too.
