Minecraft Hour of Code With Microsoft

Who wants to improve their digital skills and learn how to code using Minecraft characters?


(For children aged 6-10 years old)


We are delighted to invite you to our free Minecraft Hour of Code workshop, delivered by Microsoft in collaboration with Lloyds Bank, to help your kids improve their digital skills. 

It is compulsory that children attending are accompanied by a responsible adult that remains in the venue for the duration of the event (refreshments available and coffee shop on ground floor)


Minecraft Hour of Code tutorial

The Minecraft tutorials use characters and concepts from the Minecraft video game, but it is not the game itself. For Hour of Code, Minecraft developers worked with educators and Code.org to create a Minecraft game-inspired tutorial that introduces players to basic coding concepts.

The new Minecraft tutorial introduces players to the Agent, and offers over 10 levels where players will learn how to use loops, debugging, and functions. By learning these basic coding concepts, players will design their own solutions to puzzles and watch the Agent execute their coded commands. The tutorial also includes free time to explore coding concepts they’ve learned through playing to deepen their understanding.
