Students will explore a Medieval village, built in Minecraft world and relive the medieval times. Survival and prosperity depend on their skill with a sword, their skills at building, and their ability to rule. Minecraft players will write Lua code to build and survive. The Lua code utilizes abstract features of coding, such as loops, sequential execution, and variables to construct actual Minecraft buildings. This allows Minecraft players to watch the execution of abstract coding algorithms in a visual manner. We also utilize the visualization capabilities of this tool to teach geometric algorithms and to perform complex repetitive building tasks, such as the patterning of architecture and replication of similar structures – all of which will be taught in the virtual world of Minecraft!
