MineSchool: design your school using Minecraft

Design your school using Minecraft


We have designed this project for the 4rd ESO students who are attending to Technology subject. This will be an interesting and motivating project, very practical and will relate to maths, science, and engineering. Moreover, our aim is to apply the Multiple Intelligences Theory (Gardner) in order to carry out a project with a group of students with different abilities. So each of them will be responsible for one task that makes him feel comfortable.

At the end of the project we will have a virtual school mockup in Minecraft world that we will share with the school community. To do that, students will measure the school buildings, take photos, draft it on paper and finally re-create it in Minecraft. So, everyone will be able to visit our school and even propose engineering improvements related to mobility, green spaces, occupation, and room distribution.


* Students will be able to use measurements and ratios to recreate an actual building in Minecraft.

* Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of building to scale and proper proportions in engineering concepts.

* Students will apply visualizing comprehension to illustrate their understanding.

* Students will demonstrate collaborative skills and teamwork in compiling data and information to complete the task.
