Minecraft: basics of artificial intelligence

Whom a robot will never replace? Its developer! Try your hand at creating artificial intelligence the popular game Minecraft.

Google CEO SundarPichai once said that artificial intelligence would change the world more than the development of fire or the invention of electricity. According to a study by Gartner, by 2025 the number of jobs related to Artificial Intelligence (AI) will exceed two million. That is why it is so important to introduce children to the basics of this technology now. An ideal tool for learning AI is Minecraft, which millions of schoolchildren (and not only) around the world are passionate about.

Microsoft has created an educational platform based on this game that helps children quickly and efficiently learn the most complex sciences, including the art of programming. In addition, according to the observations of teachers who use the game in their work, Minecraft helps children develop math and critical thinking, creativity, communication, and teamwork skills, as well as the ability to make decisions about teamwork skills, and teaches decision-making.

Using the Microsoft methodology, we have created a Minecraft in-depth programming course for Minecraft fans.

About the course

"Minecraft: An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence" is a long-term course for kids 7 to 10 years old. It is suitable for those who are just starting out in programming or already have a basic knowledge.

The program of the course is designed for 8 months of intensive study. The task of students is to program their own agent forsolve routine game tasks: building, resource extraction, protection from mobs. To do this, children master the fundamental themes Programming - loops, conditional structures, arrays - and learn to apply this knowledge in practice in the construction of the Minecraft game universe. Toward the end of the course, students program in JavaScript, one of the most widely used and programming languages in the world.

For training, we use the educational environment MakeCode (developed by Microsoft). This development environment is similar to Scratch (in level of complexity, too), but offers a much wider functionality for learning programming.

We devote 25% of our teaching time to the development of the so-called soft skills. At the lessons, we need to work in a team and communicate, as In the classes you have to work in teams and communicate, just like professional programmers in companies. In addition, in the process of working together on projects, students develop their leadership skills, creativity and skills of time management, problem solving and decision-making.

What skills will the child learn in the course?

In the process of working on a collaborative IT project, they develop:

  • programming skills;
  • mathematical thinking;
  • algorithmic thinking;
  • logical thinking;
  • creative thinking; creative thinking;
  • critical thinking;
  • leadership skills;
  • communication skills;
  • teamwork skills;
  • problem solving skills;
