DC KIDS TECH MEETUP #8 - Let's Play Minecraft

 

* Come and Learn why Minecraft is popular with the kids

* Learn how teachers and parents can use Minecraft to teach about Math, History, and Geography.

 

Minecraft is a popular online "survival" or "sandbox" game that puts players in a randomly-generated world where they can create their own structures and contraptions. During the day, players are safe; at night or while underground, zombies, skeletons, and other hostile monsters attack, emphasizing the need for shelter and protection. Created by Mojang AB, a small game studio based in Sweden, the game has grown in popularity since its first release in 2009 and currently has over 4 million players. Minecraft includes two modes: Survival (described above) and Creative (grants the player invincibility, flight, and unlimited resources). Players can join an online server with other people or play alone.

    Do we need a library card
    Should we bring our own laptop?

      I am not the organizer, but my guess is that you should bring your laptop. I doubt you need a library card, but if you wanted one you could get one there.
