Event description
Take your skills to the next level with our Intermediate Minecraft session

About this Event

A village is threatened by fire and needs you to code a solution! Meet your coding helper, the Minecraft Agent, then program the Agent to navigate the forest and collect data. This data will help the Agent predict where fires will occur. Then code the Agent to help prevent the spread of fire, save the village, and bring life back into the forest. Learn the basics of coding and explore a real-world example of artificial intelligence (AI).

In this session, you will learn:

  • Get a high-level understanding of how Artificial Intelligence can be used to collect data about forest fires
  • Create coding solutions that include sequences, events, loops, and conditionals
  • Decompose (break down) the steps needed to solve a problem into a precise sequence of instructions
  • Iterate on solutions to complete a task
  • The lesson also includes free time to explore coding concepts they’ve learned through playing to deepen their understanding.

This workshop is appropriate for all ages, but is best suited for children ages 6 – 12. There will be limited technology available to use alongside the instructor, however we recommend you bring in your own computer/tablet to participate.
