Course Information

Overview

This fun and exciting course generates a passion for coding and assists in learning the Coding language, Python. Learn how to build structures, create games and manipulate the world of Minecraft through the power of code.

Hacking Minecraft (Level 1)
This course is designed for students who have done some coding before and have a basic understanding of how to Coding works. By the end of the course they will be able to create basic games, build bridges and change worlds through the language of Python.

Hacking Minecraft (Level 2)
Building on their previous knowledge gained in the “Hacking Minecraft Level 1” course, your child will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of how the Python code can manipulate the Minecraft world. In this course they will continue to develop knowledge of the Python language and learn how to utilise more of the Minecraft modules to import images, generate amazing 3D objects and complex buildings, in to their very own Minecraft world.

Hacking Minecraft (Level 3)
The final part of the Hacking Minecraft courses, this course allows your child to express what they have learnt through the creating of their own programs. With the support of the tutors, your child will have the opportunity to create cities of their own design, weapons for their Minecraft worlds and even games for other to play. An exciting way to wrap up their Hacking Minecraft courses.

Outcomes

At the successful conclusion of the 3 courses your child should have a good grasp on the basics of the coding language Python. This then leads perfectly in to the next course of learning the language, Python, in a more pure form. If from this your child has more of an interest in the games side of coding they would then be suited to move across to our Game Design courses.
