Minecraft Inventions Snr

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

For students aged 12-16, we’ll be doing even more advanced Minecraft Redstone work to create machines, gadgets and inventions.  We’ll start with puzzles and basic circuitry, creating timers, AND gates, traps and dispensers.  We’ll also be progressing onto creating doors that require specific items to open, and creating item systems.  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

Minecraft Inventions Design In Detail

You will learn how to use Redstone to create your very own puzzles. These puzzles include a floor trap, a moving platform parkour puzzle and many others.

We will be using our very own Minecraft server where you will be working on the same world as other students on the course. Redstone behaves in a similar way to logic circuits. So the knowledge you will learn here will help you in the future. Problem-solving is also a big part of this course and you will need to find ways to connect circuits and have space to create the puzzle itself. It can get complicated but our tutors are here to help you make sense of it all.

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.

FAQs

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.
