Minecraft 7 Wonders and Galaxy
Our students will continue to develop their building skills and further their knowledge in architecture and civil engineering with Minecraft 7 Wonders. They will learn about the 7 ancient and modern architectural Wonders of the World, their history, culture, geography and the engineering it took to build them. They will build their own replicas in order to create the 7 Wonders of Minecraft.
Students will also work with the Galaxy curriculum, learning about Earth's oceans and undersea life with Oceancraft Mod, to compare life on earth and the importance of water and oxygen vs. life in space. Using Galacticraft Mod, they will explore space, design and build rockets that travel to the moon, International Space Stations, and even Mars while learning all the science behind the universe and life. While in Mars they will attempt to terraform this planet and create sustainable life colonies.
Comprised of 8-10 students who actively want to be part of a ‘Robotics Team’ using LEGO Mindstorm.
Mindstorms is a software platform produced by Lego for the development of programmable robots based on Lego building blocks. Each version of the system includes an intelligent ‘brick’ computer that controls the system, a set of modular sensors and motors, and Lego parts from the Technic line to create the mechanical systems.
The concepts will enable the students to build and program their own robots with the ability to receive commands directed by the students using tablets, computers and smart phones.
