Minecraft for STEM Education

Target Audience: K-12th Grade Teachers

The Minecraft for STEM Education workshop will focus on how students can use Minecraft Education as a STEM tool and how it can easily be used for PBL opportunities. Teachers will learn the successes and roadblocks of piloting Minecraft Education.

Having some prior knowledge of Minecraft Education will benefit participants as we explore and play during this session.
