Review

This book is amazing on so many levels. It really knows how to draw the kids into it and capture their interest. The book walks the reader through fascinating labs that you can do in Minecraft, thereby utilizing the computerized world as an educational platform. But, then it also has really cool labs to do in the real world. KellysThoughtsOnThings.com If you have multiple Minecraft lovers in your household, it should be able to withstand several read-throughs. Christ Centered Gamer This is so cool! This [book has] hands on activities (not touching the screen) to make science connections to Minecraft. Teacher Tech with Alice Keeler The book is simply amazing, and teachers will find a chart in the back of the book with how each project relates to Classroom Standards. But parents and camp instructors (like me) are going to find this book an invaluable resource for using Minecraft to teach (or sneak in) some real-world projects and hands-on activities. GeekDad This is a great book for encouraging Minecraft-obsessed kids to try something different in the game and getting them involved in STEM in the real-world too. GeekMom One of the main things that I like about this book is that each of the six chapters begins with an activity that is completed without the use of a digital device. Next come related activities in the creative mode of Minecraft. [...] Recommended. School Library Connection Perfect for memorable family nights or sensational classroom fun, guided quests and labs encourage creative thinking and collaborative communication with dozens of activities designed to engage children, teens, and adults, both on- and offline.
