Esports: Minecraft STEM Battles

Grades 4-10

This Minecraft esports program is similar to LEGO First robotics, and other academic competition clubs, and offers a new way to challenge players. In this esports program, competitors will be tasked with analyzing and solving complex science & engineering problems and using Minecraft to demonstrate their solutions. Teams will compete against each other by building & coding academic solutions within Minecraft Education Edition. However, like a traditional game competition, teams must also play offense & defense, sending out scouts to interrupt their competitors.
