The amazing popularity of Minecraft's universe is largely due to the freedom of action, which gives unlimited opportunites for creative and experiments. The game-designer has long gone beyond a simple "computer game" and is used as a means of learning in many school
The unique course "programming on Lua in Minecraft" will allow your child to go from getting the basic skills of writing code to the basics of building a game of artificial intelligence and Autonomous system of robots. During lessons, children learn one of the most interesting modern programming languages Lua
Lua is a powerful, fast, extensible and easy to embed scripting language for creating programs. It was developed in 1993 in the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. Nowadays, it is widely used, and it is a leading scripting language in the most games (for example, Angry birds, World of Warcraft, X-Plane, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and more) and in a large number of different applications
The main advantages of language Lua are:
1) easy and understandable, with one data type and a unique;
3) flexible and simple built-in language (it can be integrated with programs written in other languages);
4) one of the fastest and most productive scripting languages.
The Lua programming language is ideal for beginners and provides a good basis for continuing to learn more complex programming languages.
Why will "Lua programming in Minecraft" be interesting and useful course for children?
The course is conducted by an experienced teacher-practitioner and the learning of the Lua programming language is based on the principle from simple to hard. During the course of interesting practical classes your child will:
1) get knowledge of the basics of programming, sufficient to master the necessary skills in a visual form.
2) learn the simple principles of the game world, as well as the modification of the game Minecraft-Computercraft, adding programmable computers and programmable robot Turtles.
3) learn how to influence the game world of Minecraft with the help of Computercraft Turtles, which will build buildings, extract resources, learn to navigate in the space;
4) will pump English skills in the background, as all commands are given in simple English.
As you advance and develop the skill, the application of artificial intelligence technologies will increase with each Lua programming lesson. The collection and analysis of data and the basis of decision support tools will be added as an extra bonus. As a result, we learn the AI field in practice - solving exciting tasks, mastering the game world and creating our own games
The one who has previously mastered the basics of programming, will find the possibility of further growth through the solution of applied problems of robot control.
The course is designed for children aged 12-16 years. If you are smaller, make sure your child familiar with the English keyboard layout.
We will help your child to contribute to the real world, improving their skills in the virtual world
During the training process we evaluate the practical side (how to do it?) and understanding the topics as well (why and what for?)
Students demonstrate knowledge by solving tasks in their own way, explaining the algorithms in own words, helping other students to correct mistakes and creating presentations on the final course project.
