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, boys and girls will learn the fundamentals of Java programming by creating their own Minecraft ® Mod (or Modification) 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 polished 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 and meaningful 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. Effective and Entertaining Regardless of your location or expertise with technology, your kids can gain critical computer, programming and technology skills in a manner that is highly interactive, rewarding and fun.
