WHAT IS IT?
Tony Hill will be teaching the kids basic programming (Java) styles and syntax. The kids will be shown how to use their new found skills to develop Mods for the popular game Minecraft! These skills will translate into learning how program the robots using the new ROBOTC language.
FOR KIDS TO GET THE FULL EXPERIENCE, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT THEY HAVE A MINECRAFT ACCOUNT AND A LAPTOP
This doesn't mean you can't come and share, everyone is welcome! There are one or two extra laptops, but, to get the full experience, a laptop with a Minecraft account is necessary.
