Modding (short for “modifying”) is the art of editing the Minecraft source code to make custom blocks, monsters, items, weapons, armour and levels. This Think Camp gives kids the chance to understand how all the elements of Minecraft are created and then go on to create their own custom ‘mods’. Simply put, if Minecraft were a car, this Think Camp would teach us how to strip it down to pieces, insert our own custom components and then reassemble it all!
