Intro to Redstone Logic in Minecraft is a fun coding camp that introduces kids to redstone, an element used for mechanical and electrical programming in Minecraft. They will learn how redstone works and advance to build logic gates, similar to what electrical engineers create. By the completion of this camp, students will have the knowledge to build many exciting redstone projects in Minecraft.
For ages 11-13. Beginners welcome. No homework – All fun!
When students finish Intro to Redstone Logic in Minecraft they will have learned:
- Basics of redstone and its various components
- Redstone logic that can be used in and beyond the Minecraft game
- How redstone logic can be applied to real world programming
Virtual Minecraft Classroom
Each class has its own dedicated server so all classmates play in the same Minecraft world. It’s a unique shared world setup where students learn and play safely together. Students can interact and inspire each other in-game!
- Day 1 – Redstone Basics
In this first lesson, students begin to understand the basics of redstone components. This includes how to activate, position, and extend redstone blocks. By the end of this lesson, students will have built a fort that has redstone-powered traps to protect against mobs!
- Day 2 – The Redstone Comparator
In this lesson, students to learn more about the redstone comparator, a redstone component used to maintain, compare, or subtract signal strength, or to measure certain block states. They’ll create projects such as a chest fullness detector and fireworks machine. This helps students better understand the uses of comparators, and how they can improve their Minecraft experience.
- Day 3 – Basics of Logic Gates
In this lesson, we introduce logic gates using Redstone components. Students will create multiple different versions of locking doors using daylight detectors, lecterns, and levers. They will also implement logic gates such as the AND gate and the OR gate in order to make these doors more secure.
- Day 4 – Advanced Redstone Logic Gates
In this lesson, students build on their experience with logic gates by building bigger, more advanced ones. They will create exciting projects, which include a TNT trap, available room detector, and an upgraded daylight door. These more advanced logic gates include the NOR, NAND, and XOR gates.
- Day 5 – Working with Command Blocks
In this final lesson, students begin to use command blocks to make a monster gauntlet. They learn basic commands to summon monsters into their game and change some game settings. They will also learn about the different types of command blocks and how they can help make exciting mini-games!
Before the start of camp, students should meet the following requirements:
- Be familiar with basics of Minecraft game
- Have all required class technology
- Minecraft for the PC is required for the class. Purchase it here or check with your student if this is the version they already have.
