Design your own reality!

Creating Virtual Worlds in Minecraft

In this camp, campers will create and design virtual worlds inside Minecraft. They will gain hands-on experience in programming the virtual world and giving objects a simple AI so that the objects can automatically move and interact with the virtual world. Through the experience, campers will learn basic concepts of computational thinking, programming, and AI. This five-day, in-person camp is tailored for girls but is open to participants of all identities and does not require any prior knowledge of programming or Minecraft. 

Campers will have the chance to work alongside talented engineers and learn how to build some of the advanced components in the virtual world, including those with AI. Additionally, campers will have the opportunity to interact with successful female computer scientists to learn about the field.
