Course Description

Minecraft Modding 1 - Kids Coding Classes

In this beginner course, Skill Samurai provides foundational computer science training using Java and Minecraft. Covering key coding concepts such as basic conditional statements, loops, and functions, we build a series of progressively more rigorous projects that provide a solid foundation in Java programming. Students will build a number of custom mods including swords, blocks, ores.

Skill Samurai’s research-based, project based learning (PBL) approach to Minecraft 1 keeps the learning fun and engaging, while ensuring a solid foundation in CS.

Upon completion of Minecraft 1 Core, students will be ready to advance to Minecraft 2 Core.

Minecraft 1 Core Curriculum – Ages 8+

The Minecraft 1 Core course normally takes between 2 and 4 months to complete, depending upon course frequency (1:1 versus 1:1 Accelerated), the student’s prior coding experience, and the student’s consistency in completing homework assignments. Our teachers move at the student’s pace, and spend time ensuring that students have a thorough understanding of key concepts.
