This highly structured course is aimed to be a bridge between Minecraft Exploration and our programming courses. Students will start by creating a fairly standard Minecraft base, then they will utilise redstone and some of the tools provided by mods in order to automate it. Along the way, students will develop their programming skills, as well as learning a host of other useful abilities (including efficiency analysis). By the end of the course, the students will be well prepared to take the leap and do one of our Python courses.
