Description: Explore with your students in this year’s Computer Science Education Week an activity around building and crafting in space with MakeCode. Students will put their coding skills to the test as they follow coding instructions to solve puzzles in space on iPad. Using Minecraft’s Agent, students will be able to collect samples from planets in space while learning coding concepts in MakeCode such as while loops, “agent inspect”, “agent detect”, if/else conditional statements and more. Students will also use iPad’s accessibility features as they dive into the Minecraft world along with gaining tips and tricks in easily sharing portfolios for assessment.
