    Does your kid play Minecraft? Would they like to express creativity and participate in build battles? 

    Do they spend endless hours and watch youtube videos? How about teach them a skill to record their own video? 

    As a parent, do you understand what's the craze about this game? Do you want to get a comprehensive introduction to the game of Minecraft?

    Minefest is a festival for all kids and parents who play the game of Minecraft. It is also for all kids and parents who would like to understand what this game is about. It is also about expressing your creativity and winning some swag!

    So what will you do in this day long festival?

    • Minecraft newbie camp: Targeted at kids and parents who would like to learn how to play the game. This will allow parents to have a more intelligent conversation with their kids.

    • Minecraft hour of code (borrowed from code.org): Use blocks of code to take Steve or Alex on an adventure through this Minecraft world.

    • Minecraft Modding: Create new mods and learn basic Java programming

    Is this a drop off event or do parents need to attend?

      The form only lets me pay for one ticket. I assume that means the parent is free (especially since parents aren't allowed to drop their children off). But it really ought to be clarified.

      Parents don't need to buy tickets. We need a local guardian who would be responsible for the kid during the event. You are welcome to pair up with others.
