For the NYC DOE Minecraft Challenge, students will “Build a Better World” by designing a public space for their community in Minecraft, keeping in mind the local culture and ecosystem as well as the needs of the different types of people that will use the space. Find out more by going to schools.nyc.gov/minecraft.
Students have free access to Minecraft: Education Edition (M:EE) as long as they use their NYC DOE student account (ends with @nycstudents.net). If your child doesn’t know or is using a school google account, you can help them get their account info by going to https://www.schools.nyc.gov/studentaccounts.
You’ll find all the information including a short video, rubric, and submission details on schools.nyc.gov/minecraft.
