First, there was Tetris. Now, there’s Minecraft.

Minecraft is one of the most popular and timeless video games the world has ever encountered. The only thing we figured could make it even cooler is learning how to design original creatures, buildings, and objects for your game play!

Students will jump into the world of CAD, engineering their way from planning a design to exporting a completed project into Minecraft. Learning CAD is valuable outside of the Minecraft universe, too. At completion, students will be able to use their new skills to design 3D models for production and be able to recognize and troubleshoot design flaws and other problems.

Workshop Outline:

  • Build Minecraft creatures, buildings, objects
  • TinkerCAD tutorials
  • Export creations into Minecraft
  • Presentation for the parents

Students will leave with:

  • Tinkercad Account
  • Original Minecraft designs
  • Steve In-Training Certificate
