Parents & Kids ❤️ Our Classes

We've taught thousands of kids around the world 🌎
Here's what their parents have to say...

He counts down to coding class every week, starting at “6 days to go” – he looks forward to the classes that much. He has transformed from being shy and uncertain when using a computer to being completely independent.

Bec T.
Aiden's mum

She has so thoroughly enjoyed her coding and can’t wait to get on and go. We have noticed a change in her schooling, especially problem solving. So we are extremely happy with the course.

Dave P.
Caitlyn's dad

We particularly appreciated the specific feedback received each week and calm, positive approach shown by the facilitators. 

Matthew D.
Henry's dad

The best part is that it allows him to develop skills in programming that benefit all other areas of his learning at school.

Adrian Giles
Hugo's dad

She looked proud as punch with herself when I arrived home and told me in great detail what she’d achieved. Thanks so much. She loves it.

Bec Smith
Ella's mum

He has high functioning autism but computers are his special interest and he is very bright but just a little shy on the social front. This class is brilliant as it enables interaction in safe environment of home.

Student's mum

Nate is loving the classes and the interaction of the online delivery, being that age ‘doing’ is far better than reading text books!!

Leigh P.
Nate's mum

Thank you for the amazing service you are providing, and for being so flexible and immediately accommodating to reschedule Dan’s class. After his lesson tonight he said it was so good!

Code A Different Minecraft Mod Each Week

Your child will learn all about variables as they make pigs fly, and 3D co-ordinate systems as they create their paintballs - and tons more!

Watch the video to see a preview of the lessons.

Crazy Mobs

Week 1
In this class we'll make flying pigs, creepers riding spiders, or any other crazy combination you can think of! If we code quickly, we might even have time to ride the ender-dragon 😱

Paintsplash Mini-Game #1

Week 4
In this class we tell our computer to make a pretty paint splash when we throw an egg, so that next week we can play and test our paintball-inspired mini-game!

Paintsplash Mini-Game #2

Week 5
In this class we add scoring into our mini-game, so we can tell the computer to keep track of who is winning in our game. Once we're ready, we'll test the game out with our classmates!

Ender-Pig Mini-Game

Week 6
In this class we code another mini-game, where we run around turning pigs into zombies quicker than our classmates can. We'll leave plenty of time for testing & playing at the end!

Secret Volcano Lair

In this class you'll tell the computer to create a treasure, and then point your compass towards the treasure so that you can go dig around and find it quickly!

Spleef! Mini-Game

Week 10
In this class we'll code the popular game Spleef! and play it with our classmates. We'll add in scoring, and make sure the winner is whoever avoids the lava for longest.

Six Skills We Develop In Our Classes

Our lessons develop a cross-section of valuable skills. Parents love seeing improvements show up in their child's schoolwork as a result.

To program a computer, we must give very explicit, clear & logical instructions.

We construct simple algorithms, learn all about XYZ co-ordinates, and more!

We focus on breaking down larger problems into small chunks of code, then assembling a solution. 

Whether its spawning flying slimes or building a skyscraper out of cake - we're endlessly creative!

We encourage experimentation - trying, failing, and trying again until our code works the way we want.

Attention To Detail
Programming a computer requires focused thinking and attention to detail, or our code won't work!

LIMITED SPOTS! Small classes, weekly parent updates, unlimited practice time. Book Now for $249 USD.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question you'd like answered, just shoot us an email at [email protected] or use the live chat on the bottom right of this page.

What's next for my child once they've done this program?

After completing the beginner program, we have an intermediate program that explores some more advanced coding concepts still using drag and drop code. After that, we'd recommend your child progress to a written language such as python or javascript.

Can my child use these skills outside of Minecraft?

Absolutely! We teach coding & computational thinking skills in the context of making Minecraft mods but the concepts and learnings will translate to anything: coding games, websites, apps, robots, etc. If your child is doing coding at school, these classes will definitely help there too!

Can my child load their mods onto their own Minecraft world?

Unfortunately the mods will only work in our Minecraft server. If your child is taking classes with us, they'll have 24/7 access to the server to code, test & play!

What happens if we're away for a few weeks during the program?

If you're going to be away for a few weeks on holiday, or for another reason, just let us know and we'll do our best to move your child to another class or run a makeup class, so they don't miss out!
