Developed In Collaboration
We’ve worked with teachers, STEM specialists and Engineering Employers to develop resources for you to teach and inspire your class in a new and exciting way.
Guide your students with the lesson plans aligned to the curriculum learning outcomes, use the self-serve student worksheets, and accompanying video tutorials to guide you through the Minecraft games and lessons. Not everyone knows Minecraft so we’ve made it easy.
"I liked the game because in my future career I'd like to be an astronaut. It's really nice to be learning engineering in a game that I can play and have fun at the same time."
What is Minecraft?
Minecraft is the world’s most played game. It is accessible, packed with educational features and provides endless opportunity for collaboration.
Playing Minecraft enhances creativity and develops problem-solving skills in a safe and secure environment.
