Kids Learn to Code in Java by Making Mods for Minecraft

Youth Digital's mission is to teach kids real software coding and design skills by creating awesome projects with cutting-edge technology.

In our most popular online course, kids will learn the fundamentals of Java programming by creating their own Minecraft Mod for the PC / Mac version of Minecraft. For every item, block or creature they want to add, kids will first design and then code their object in Java. At the end of the course, they will have their own completed Minecraft Mod that they created from scratch.

Mod Design 1 for Minecraft is a unique opportunity for young students to learn Java in an exciting way. They will not only come away with an impressive project to share with their friends, but also with a foundational knowledge of object-oriented programming.

Software Overview

In order to get started Modding, students first download and install Eclipse (a professional programming tool), and Java version 1.7. We install a static version of Java so that if Java updates, it will not disrupt the course technology and user experience.

Additionally, we use Minecraft version 1.6.4 to teach students how to create their own mod. We use this version instead of the most recent 1.8 version because more recent updates would not be as stable or consistent for our students long-term. While we teach our students program using the code base for Minecraft 1.6.4, they can export their project to the latest 1.8 version at the end of the course.
