About Us

Minecraft game mechanics are incredibly analogous to engineering. We focus on teaching problem solving and programming techniques in a safe, encouraging ecosystem centered around Minecraft. We are currently running camps in the Dallas, TX and Shreveport, LA area with our team of trained instructors but we also offer training and guidance for you to build your own team.

The curriculum is for any teacher or parent that has some programming knowledge to teach a camp style format (1 week per level) or a club style format (all year curriculum). This curriculum is ever evolving, and welcomes your input. If you have things you'd like to teach or know would be valuable to the entire Minecraft U community, please begin contributing!

What We Do

Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to guide a child from the basics of Minecraft gameplay all the way through to programming using modern programming languages. Our materials are engaging and skip the cruft of most books or templated materials. Maintaining it ourselves means we are able to keep it updated to the changing landscape of both Minecraft and technology education. Our curriculum is available on GitHub.

Servers

Minecraft U maintains whitelisted servers, allowing your child to learn and play in a safe, educational environment. Minecraft U instructors participate on the servers, and all players agree to a code of conduct.

Tech Support and Questions

Official support channels, staffed by official Minecraft U instructors, for near-real-time direct technical support and questions about the curriculum.

Staff

Our staff is comprised of computer scientists, teachers and software developers who also enjoy gaming and Minecraft.

Tooling

We use the most modern tooling available. We are technologists ourselves and as such understand the importance of having the best tools. We walk you through the process of installing, using and maintaining this toolkit.

Knowledge Base

We keep up with the trends in Minecraft, gaming and online community in order to keep you informed and your children safe.
