Welcome Packets

Minecraft likes to update A LOT! On the Thursday before your class week begins, we run tests for any new compatibility errors between Minecraft and the class curriculum. Thursday afternoon you will receive a welcome packet for your class, explaining the rundown of the class week, as well as including which version of Minecraft you will want to have ready to go for class on Monday.

This class uses Minecraft Java Edition. If you don’t own one then please ask and we can lend you a copy for the week. At the end of the week your Minecraft adventure world can be converted to any version of Minecraft you prefer.
