Python – M, W, F & Minecraft Modding Tu, Th
Three days a week we will be running a continual class in Python Programming. Starting with the basics, we will using a project based curriculum. The projects and curriculum will be based off of traditional projects combined with the interests of the group as a whole. We will also incorporate many real world examples into our projects. Every few weeks we will start a big project to combine all we have learned so far into something that will both challenge students and give them tangible evidence of the skills they’ve learned.
After the first few months we will begin to get into larger and larger projects. We can eventually move towards game design, AI programming, or one of many other topics that the group can choose from. This way we can continue forward at a brisk but manageable pace, and keep everyone excited about what’s coming next.
Two days of the week JoJo and I will continue our work on Minecraft Java Modding. We will finish up covering the core Minecraft code and begin to truly make anything we can imagine a Minecraft reality. We will also play with several modules Chris is planning that relate to Drone Simulation, and see if JoJo has interest in pursuing that direction. The big goal though, will be for JoJo to imagine up things that don’t exist at all in Minecraft, but that he really wants, and then we will learn to make those specific mods. This will push his understanding of both Java and the Minecraft Code Base to vast new heights.
