The Exploratory/Maker Guilds Chief Tinkerer and Founder Jean Kaneko and Travis Grady, our Minecraft expert were just on a Maker Camp hangout with Jens Bergensten, the Lead Developer of Minecraft at Mojang!!!
It was great to share how we use Minecraft at The Exploratory and Maker Guilds to introduce young makers to coding, 3D modeling, negotiation strategies, building, and of course Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math ( STEAM). Jens shared a brand new function that they just released 2 hours prior to broadcast - the ability to make flags! It will be perfect for our Art of War ( Sun Tzu ) curriculum that we are building.
The Exploratory/Maker Guilds will be sharing our Minecraft server with our unique curriculum to the public in the fall of 2014 and creating challenges where mine crafters in maker spaces around the world can participate in!!
