A storm of chickens? Self-assembling walls? Robots that escape mazes? Learn the fundamentals of computer programming by writing code that allows you to perform ‘magic’ in the world of Minecraft. We will learn to teleport, create blocks, spawn monsters, program mini-games and make buildings – all with the use of code.
