It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a Minecraft expert - we have a spot for you. We will focus on creativity, collaboration, and communication. Our club will be using a special version of Minecraft called Minecraft: Education Edition – one designed specifically for teachers and students to create and explore together.

In addition, we will be exploring coding and simple modding with Minecraft.
