(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – A new mod has been created that teaches kids how to code while playing the popular block building game Minecraft.
“Kids are already spending ridiculous amounts of hours on Minecraft, so we thought this would be a good way to help them learn skills,” said ThoughtSTEM co-founder Stephen Foster.
Included in the software is over 100 lessons with video tutorials, badges for accomplishing tasks, and private servers that allow players to show their projects to friends and family.
ThoughtSTEM’s LearnToMod will be released in October and will be priced at $30.
