Minecraft Modding Mayhem – School Holiday CodeSpace Camp
Minecraft has taken the world by storm, with many children listing it as their favourite game. But what if we could turn just playing the game into an educational experience where kids could learn and explore coding?
At CodeSpace Education, that is exactly what we have done with Minecraft Modding Mayhem! Modding or “mods” as they are more commonly referred to are modifcations of the traditional game, which are usually comprised of special and crazy items like swords that spark lightning, jetpacks and more!
In this workshop, we develop students’ coding skills through use of event-based coding to teach them about logic and problem solving.
Not to mention, at the end you can take your own mods home and play them at home! We have put coding and Minecraft put together to create an awesome educational experience for students.
This one day school holiday workshop is our most popular workshop and usually books out 100%, so we reccomend getting in quickly to avoid disappointment.

Your child should attend this course because it teaches kids how to think logically, problem solve and does it all through play. By creating a coding course where kids can engage with their favourite games on a higher level, we are able to engage students and ensure that they have an awesome time, and when students are having fun, they learn better and retain more knowledge.
When we create Minecraft Mods using event-based coding, we are able to let children’s imaginations run wild all while getting them to think like a software developer would. Like all of our courses, it is fun meets education.

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