Junior Entreprenurs with MINECRAFT – Holiday CodeSpace Camp

 

At CodeSpace Education, being founded by a young entrepreneur ourselves, our team has always believed that when you couple coding with entrepreneurship – you have a superpower!

Entrepreneurship is often tainted with “be your own boss” schemes, but it is much more than that. Through the power of entrepreneurship combined with coding, you can change the world. Think about some of the most successful startups and the massive impact they have on your life today, from Facebook to Uber to AirBnb. They were all created with code. That’s why these school holidays at CodeSpace Education we are running entrepreneurship workshops for kids where they will learn about making money in a business, how to solve a market need and more – all while in MINECRAFT!

We have created a complex economic simulator (but simple to understand for kids) in a Minecraft Server, so all students at this workshop will connect to a local Minecraft Server and play together in a world with special rules and mods that allow us to teach children about starting and running a very basic business.

Age Ranges: 7-14

Some of the content that we cover in the class is: (but is subject to change or modification)

–How to make a profit in a business

–Why business is all about solving a need that other people have

–How to work towards a goal

–How to work together as a team

–How to make a profit and follow the rules of a society

As it says in the description, we believe in the power of entrepreneurship and coding. This is because coding is only a tool, and you have to wield it to be able to effect positive change in the world.

In this workshop, we have created a simple experience for kids to help them understand money management, how to tell if you are making a profit or a loss and how to solve another person’s problems – and of course the simulation is in Minecraft so the kids have heaps of fun as well!

We don’t have lots of assistants, instead we focus on having better ones, which create a better learning environment overall.

A: No, we provide all devices to work on in class and then at the end of the day we will email home the link to your child’s creation.
