The Minecraft New Horizons Program helps campers to prepare themselves for the future workplace by improving their skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking and systematical thinking. The program will also ensure the campers that they understand the basics of sustainable life on Mars.

Space Station Mission
During our simulated space station missions, campers are assigned special positions (such as Commander on the Space Shuttle Discovery, Flight Director inside Mission Control, or Flight Engineer in our Space Station).
Each member of the team is integral to the success of the mission. If a team member neglects a vital duty or assignment, it may have an adverse effect on the outcome of the flight.
Participants learn how to effectively communicate with one another, solve problems together, and work as a team to ensure overall success of the mission.
