Workshops for Building Minecraft Mods, 3D Stuff, Robots, and more!

xwing

Through making and tinkering, students learn using their hands, grow their creativity, and become more curious about their world and testing the limits of what is possible. InspiredToEducate.NET and SparkMacon Makerspace have designed a series of workshops to connect students with the essential technology skills of inventing using computer programming, digital fabrication, and robotics.   Through these workshop students will gain exposure to STEAM skills including coding, 3D modeling, 3D printing, laser cutting, and robot building.  

Parents and kids are invited to take this workshop together.  It’s a great family activity!

Location for workshops:

All workshops will be held at SparkMacon Makerspace.  Funds from these Maker Skills workshops help support the operation of SparkMacon Makerspace.      

Minecraft Mod Building: Do you enjoy building in Minecraft? Are you curious about how video games are built? Minecraft has become a fun platform for learning how to code and fostering your creativity. In this workshop, you’ll learn the core skills needed to build simple Minecraft plugins. Using our puzzle based programming tools, you’ll gain exposure to designing in 3D, sequencing steps, variables and loops.

Students will receive a FREE Minecraft server configured with ScriptCraft so that they can continue building MODS at home.   Register now! Space is limited!

Students must come with their own paid PC/Mac Minecraft login. Students are encouraged to bring their own laptops, however it is not required.
