Minecraft Coding Camp Lessons

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!

Parents & Students Love The CodeWizardsHQ Summer Program!

Boy at coding camp

Great Program That Really Teaches Coding

Our 13 year old took this program over the summer and really enjoyed it. He found it challenging and fun at the same time. He thought it was a bit more difficult than typical middle school coding programs but that’s what kept him engaged. This wasn’t glorified babysitting, this program really taught him to do some coding. – Travis

Summer coding camp review, boy in yellow shirt

Great Experience!

My son enrolled in the beginner class for Python Programming. It was great! He learned a lot and it was nice that all lectures are recorded since there were a few days he had to miss during the summer. – Sima Patel

Highly Recommended On So Many Levels!

This was a great summer program for my 14-year-old. She really enjoyed it and learned a lot. The projects and homework were not overly time-intensive but reinforced each session. I highly recommend this program and so does she :). – AL
