Minecraft Entrepreneur

In small groups of 2-4, Minecrafters will create their own businesses within the game and sell their products to one another!  Business concepts and Minecraft concepts are taught simultaneously.

Minecraft Businesses may be manufacturing-based such as toolmakers, potion brewers, bakers/chefs or service-based such as Enchanters, Builders and Breeders.  Open a themepark and charge admission!  The possibilities are endless!

Business concepts we will cover are:  record keeping, inventory management, sales, purchasing and advertising.

Requirements:  Each student needs at least one valid email adress and a working flashdrive to make sure everyone has the data for theior company.  A Minecraft account is NOT required for this class.

STEM-based learning!

Science
Students will apply real-life circuitry concepts such as OR Gates and Gates, as well as how to create toggle switches, timed and delayed responses.

Technology
Students will use these concepts to build inventions which serve specific purposes, complete goals or challenges.

Engineering
These inventions include mechanisms such as elevators, doors, in-door lighting systems, rail systems, and much more. Irrigation and water flow are additional topics covered.

Math
Students will need to apply laws of symmetry and geometry in placement of this circuitry, as well as simple algebraic and problem solving techniques in order to estimate size and placement of objects.
