About

In partnership with MSU Departments of Education, Electrical/Computer Engineering, Physics, and the Montana Engineering Education Research Center (MEERC), we will be offering two, FREE 2-day summer camps.

The introduction to Minecraft camp will focus on an introduction to the Minecraft gaming platform and how it can be used to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts.

Minecraft is an exciting, engaging, and flexible tool that engages students’ spatial skills, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.  Each day, students will be led through a series of workshops where they craft their own world by completing a series of design challenges. Applicants need to know that this is a camp designed for Minecraft beginners.

Camp Dates

Dates for 2019 are August 15-16 for session one, and August 20-21 for session two. At time of application, we are not able to determine which camp your student will be assigned. However, you will be asked to provide a preferred date. Again, we cannot guarantee that your child will be assigned to your preferred dates, so you are encouraged to only apply if both sets of dates fit your schedule.
