Mod Design 2
Create your own next-level Minecraft® Mod!
Take your Java™ skills to an advanced level as you code and design a brand new Minecraft® mod with more features and functionality than ever before!
How the Course Works
Engaging self-paced lessons teach kids exciting new skills in the context of an awesome project.
Meet the Teachers:
For the first time ever, our three most experienced teachers are joining forces in a single course. Justin, Aaron, and Sean each bring their own expertise and educational style to this course and, together, they make Mod Design 2 a unique, fun, and exciting learning experience where there's never a dull moment.
The first lesson of Mod Design 2
Use Java™ to program new, advanced features in Minecraft®
In Mod Design 2, you will learn to program things never before seen in Minecraft®. You'll build upon and learn new Java™ concepts in order to wield gigantic items, spawn epic creatures with complex Artificial Intelligence, program planes, boats, and cars that you can drive around in, configure custom graphic user interfaces to forge new materials, and a whole lot more.
In Mod Design 2 Kids Learn:
Advanced Java™ Concepts
Kids build on the Java skills they learned in Mod Design 1, including instantiation, method-calls, and parameter passing. Then, they gain a deeper understanding of core concepts such as inheritance, overrides, constructors, and conditional logic.
Proficiency with new Processes
Although kids will be using Java, the same language as Mod Design 1, they will approach it from a completely different perspective. They will be coding everything from scratch, while extending and overriding Java library classes.
Ins and outs of Eclipse, a Professional Software
Kids will use more of the advanced features of Eclipse in order to code as efficiently as possible, including debug mode, code assist, and override annotations. They will learn best practices for modding and programming at a professional level.
How to make an extraordinary Mod
Because students in this course already have some experience with Java, they'll be able to hit the ground running and quickly start creating amazing things. Then, with a little extra Java know-how, they'll be able to program features they did not know were possible and create the Mod of their dreams.
“My 12 yr old daughter LOVED this. Her attitude towards math has completely changed from thinking it was boring and irrelevant to now understanding one of the practical applications of algebra.
"We are beyond satisfied with this course! Our child can't wait to move on to new challenges and other courses. Thank you, Youth Digital!"
