Tech Cats Computer Programming Camp Session 3 Minecraft Modders!
TC3 Kids is a week-long introduction to computer programming and robotics for rising 3rd  rising 8th-grade students. Kids will learn the basics of computer programming, computer science, and robotics through fun, collaborative and creative activities including Minecraft Modders coding.

No experience with computer programming or computer science is necessary!  All levels welcome!  

NEW!  This year we are partnering with Black Rocket!  

Black Rocket Minecraft Modders: Use your favorite game to learn the basics of modding and foundations of programming. Learn scripting and logic statements as you create your first mods! Introductory coding will also be taught through a simulated environment inspired by Minecraft. Student projects will be available on a password protected Black Rocket website to share with friends and family. Students must own a Java version of Minecraft to access their projects at home.
