Introductory Class

Your 7-12 year old child can code their first Minecraft mod in this 50 min online class. Up to 4 Minecraft-loving students with an experienced teacher.

Classes run every weekend.

Create 3 Fun Minecraft Mods

During the class we'll code & test some💢EXPLODING snowballs, ⚡LIGHTNING arrows and 🎆FIREWORK eggs. 

Attend From Home

We'll provide you with a login to our online software, where your child will join the video call and write their code. They'll then test it out in Minecraft (we provide a login for that too!)

Discover A New Hobby

We've run this class for thousands of kids, and its always a joy to see them discover a new interest in coding & computers. If your child wants to continue learning, we offer after-school classes.

Buy A Class, Give A Class

For every introductory class purchased, we also provide a free class to a child living in an under-privilegedcommunity. We currently partner with Korando Education Centre in Kenya, teaching their students to code.

Josh had a ball. When it was finished he put down his headset and said ‘That was AMAZING!’

Emily absolutely loved this class. I really liked the fact that you can see what each child is doing and noticed that you were right on top of things.

He has been talking about it all day. Tonight, he connected his laptop to the tv and showed us all what he did in the class!

We were so happy with how you ran it too and kept checking on the kids to make sure they were all on the same page, that was very reassuring for his father and I.

Equipment & Software Requirements

You'll need to allow a bit of time to install Minecraft and follow some quick instructions to get it set up before the class. 

A Computer With Internet

You'll need a Mac or PC computer connected to decent internet. Either a laptop or desktop computer is fine, but an ipad/tablet won't be sufficient to do the class.

A Way Of Talking To The Teacher

You'll need a way of talking to the teacher in the video call. Most computers have a microphone built in, but even better is a headset or earphones with a mic.

Your Child Loves The Class, Or Your Money Back

We're so confident that your child will love this class and come away with a big smile on their face. If they don't, just let us know and we'll be happy to process a refund.

Cancellation Policy

If something pops up and you need to cancel (tech issues, sickness, etc) we understand and appreciate as much notice as possible. We will be happy to reschedule your child's class to another day to accomodate the situation, but we do not issue refunds unless your child can't complete the class on another day. 

Rescheduling Policy

Occasionally you might experience unforeseen technical issues on the day, or something else might prevent you from doing the class. We run these classes every weekend, so can easily reschedule your child to another class at no cost so they don't miss out!
