EnderDragon Rider (July 13 - July 17): Saddle up for the ride of your life with Mod Creation: EnderDragon Rider. This exciting camp teaches students how to create a rideable EnderDragon mod that students can play with friends and family. One of our most requested mods ever, Mod Creation: EnderDragon Rider will teach students how to code in Java using the Eclipse IDE, a professional tool used by engineers at software companies like Amazon, Google, and Facebook. Students will learn important coding concepts such as conditionals, loops, inheritance, methods, arrays, and more.
Minecraft Mobs & AI (July 27 - August 31): In this creative camp, students will create their own custom mobs (Minecraft character models) and then use AI (artificial intelligence) programming to teach the mobs how to react in interesting situations. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced Minecraft gamer, this camp will present innovative challenges and opportunities to enhance your level of play.
Minecraft: Mod Creation camps are led by Drobots, a Summertimes partner. Drobots’ mission is to inspire students to reduce idle time in front of a computer screen and instead utilize technology in a setting that promotes collaborative project-based learning in a positive educational environment. If you have any questions related to the camp, please contact Drobots at fly@drobotscompany.com.
