Minecraft New Horizons
Minecraft New Horizons Activities
The Minecraft New Horizons program was created by integrating the game-based and coding-based next-generation learning tool Minecraft Education Edition into space science education.
The basic concepts of coding are taught in the program and coding is done via MakeCode using Code Builder’s web based learning environment which is based on a drag-and-drop interface. Minecraft New Horizons gives children the opportunity to create their own worlds, offering freedom to design everything without real-world constraints.
Children work in different ways to stimulate the Mars habitat and the objects they have imagined in their minds. They learn to consider various environmental factors and conditions and to think multidimensionally.
In Minecraft's New Horizons program, where building a sustainable living space on Mars is discussed, students also focus on the development of design-oriented thinking, coming up with creative solutions and collaboration skills.
