Students learn economics, civics, geometry and technology as they work together to create a city within a virtual Minecraft type world. While certainly a fun game, Minecraft is also a limitless platform for students to learn academic skills in a highly engaging virtual environment. In this problem-solving class, students design their own house and business within a virtual city as they learn about budgeting, profit and loss, supply and demand and consumer markets. As they serve on a city council, they study how laws are made and work together to create their own constitution of laws. Students use mathematics and geometry to construct a working urban environment. They must problem-solve as they serve on a city council that responding to natural disasters and challenging city issues. STEM learning has never been so fun!
