MIT and other schools are creating online game programming for young kids from ages 5+, but I was always hesitant to purchase. Then BAM!
This Minecraft online game course was a no brainer when the kids and I saw it on PlumDistrict.com. They are offering a quick sale - 50% off the original price. This promotion is for the online web programming course offered by Youth Digital. It is catered for kids, but I think mom will learn a few things as well.
Here's what they offer:
- Youth Digital's Online Mod Design 1 Course teaches students (ages 8-14) Java™ programming by modifying Minecraft® and creating their own Mod (item, block, or creature) - from scratch!
- 1-Year Subscription includes 30+ hours of interactive lessons, messaging support from teachers, extra challenges, and bonus materials
- Kids will learn the fundamentals of object-oriented programming, basic graphic design skills, critical thinking, and troubleshooting as they create their own custom Mod for Minecraft®!
- Kids will love sharing their impressive Mods with friends!
Make your kids fun activities a lifelong educational experience!
