“PyWorldCraft” is a program hosted by two rising 7th graders and sponsored by I.C.E.A. Incubator for Kids*.
In this camp we will be exposing the kids to minecraft datapacks, building strategies and world edit basics. We will be using python, a coding language to code data packs, which allows the kids to use custom recipes and functions in Minecraft. This is a very safe environment because we have our own server and we will exclude the access from random people. We will be doing many things in Minecraft and learn everything necessary to make your child better than before! They should meet with us 3 days before the camp to make sure that they can log onto the server and that they have the necessary software.
- PC or Mac,
- Minecraft Java edition account and email us their username
- Download the Minecraft launcher from: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/
- Load up Minecraft version 1.14.4
- Must be able to log into the server (pyworldcraft.ddns.net)
- Set up an account on repl.it so you can use python here: https://repl.it/~
