Summer Camp - Online: Minecraft - Build a Factory
DESCRIPTION: In this special edition of Minecraft Summer Camp, students will be challenged to build their own factory, while learning engineering and math skills (unbeknownst to them)! Using Redstone mechanics, campers will learn how to generate resources, transport objects, and explore many other topics that could happen in a factory. Because factories are so diverse in the real world, each experience in this camp will create a different build! This brand new theme is a DD exclusive in 2021. All Minecraft skill levels welcome.
-Full refund, up until 3 weeks prior to start date.
-No credits nor refunds for absences due to illness or otherwise.
-Easy change of weekly camps if your schedule changes, with advance notice and based on availability.
TECH SET UP:
PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING PRIOR TO THE START OF CAMP! The use of caps, bold, italics is because not taking these steps in advance will reduce the cool things we can accomplish, and lessen the experience for everyone. We see the frustration on young, and adult faces as everyone waits while families that didn’t follow these steps catch up. If you have questions, please call us prior to class at 424-280-4654. Thank you in advance for improving this experience for everyone.
