Summer 2015 Precollege Programs in the Arts:
Minecraft™ Designers and Modders

minecraft illustrationGrades 9–12

Design your own characters and buildings for your Minecraft™ games. Learn the basics of creating 3-D models, using new software to design your own objects, create skins for characters, and import them into your favorite Minecraft™ games. Discover the basics of modding and the foundations of programming, and learn scripting and logic statements as you create your first mod! Introductory coding is also taught through a simulated environment inspired by Minecraft.™

To broaden exposure to the arts, Minecraft™ Designers and Modders can be combined with Video Game Creators and Animators, Code Breakers and App Designers, the Songwriting Workshop, Vocal Intensive, Journalism Institute, Summer Percussion Seminar, and/or Shakespeare Workshop to make for a well-rounded summer experience.
