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™ Animators and Modders can be combined with 3-D Video Game and MakerLab Creations (new!), Code Breakers and App Designers, the Songwriting Workshop, Creative Vocal Lab, Young Actors, Youth Musical Theatre, Young Artists (updated!), Young Journalists, Creating Comic Books, and/or Young Photographers to make for a well-rounded summer experience.
