FAQ

Item1

Why learn Python Programming with Minecraft?

We believe that the best way to learn is when the student is self-motivated to complete certain tasks that they are interested in. We use Minecraft as the environment for students to practice their code, but the focus is always on the programming. As we always say in class, “Show me your code.”

In the PythonThinker Programming with Minecraft Class, students learn computational and programming concepts with Python® and use these skills to build big structures in Minecraft such as a house with a swimming pool, or a high tower surrounded by a flowing lava moat in just a few seconds and with just a few lines of code! By learning how to write programs in Python and applying it in Minecraft, your child will learn a new skill while having absolute fun in Minecraft!

What is Python?

Python® is one of the most frequently used programming language in the world (top 10 programming language in 2016). Python’s syntax is simple, clear and very closely resembles the English Language which makes it very suitable for young programmers to learn.
