Minecraft Electronics

Digital Engineering with Minecraft Redstone 

Redstone is Minecraft’s equivalent of electricity.  We start by teaching how to use this energy to create the different logic gates. Your child will then learn how these logic gates can be combined to create different circuits and complex electronic items such as calculators, elevators and more. They’ll use all the skills they learn to design and build an amazing adventure course full of challenges, surprises and puzzles that players must navigate through!

About this camp

At our Minecraft day camp, your child will be taken on a journey through the fundamentals of electronics. We’ll start with the simple concept of binary, where any two states (like up and down, or on and off) can be represented by a 0 or 1.

Using truth tables, a mathematical table used for logic, they will learn about the different logic gates and their possible outputs. Once these gates have been mastered, they’ll learn how to combine logic gates to create real-world applications, giving them a deeper understanding of how everything reduces back down to Binary.

As the week progresses the circuits will become more complex. Toward the end of the week your child’s imagination will go into overdrive as they fully comprehend the limitless possibilities of being an electronic inventor. These skills will be used to design and implement an adventure course that family and friends must navigate through – come early as these are often quite challenging!

Minecraft Electronics allows the freedom to build and experiment with electronic circuits that in the real world would be a health and safety challenge!
