WKCTC Offers Minecraft Class to Teach Students About Engineering

Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks and players originally built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters. But as the game has grown in popularity, players now work together to create wonderful, imaginative things. With this in mind, West Kentucky Community and Technical College is offering a fun class for elementary school students to use the multiplayer video game to learn about engineering.

Mr. Science, Jason Lindsey, will lead first-fifth grade students in Engineering with Minecraft, a classroom-to-classroom school program that takes the popular game from the virtual world to the classroom. Students can learn the basics of engineering by using Legos to create their own Minecraft models and more.

Students can register for a class Saturday, May 9 or Saturday May 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the colleges Emerging Technology Center, Room 140. The cost of each class is $60, including a light snack.

To register, call (270) 534-3335 or online here.
