Minecraft Modding Classes - ThoughtSTEM Beneath the world of Minecraft is an equally fascinating world of hardware and software -- built upon 150 years of computer science history. This class introduces students to this new world by exploring client/server architectures, network security, operating systems, and computer programming. To explore this world, students will be guided in setting up Minecraft servers and building Minecraft mods – while also being taught key computer science principles. The class is taught in a project-based style – with minimal lectures – making it both fun and educational. A talk by ThoughtSTEM's CEO. What is 3D GameLab? - 3D GameLab | 3D GameLab 3D GameLab™ is a gamified content creation and student tracking platform where teachers can design and share quests and badges to create personalized learning for their students. Students “level up” through the curriculum, choose quests they want to play, and earn experience points, badges, and awards. Quests can be aligned to standards, including Common Core and NGSS, for real-time achievement reporting. Class is literally turned into a game, providing the opportunity for true mastery learning. Teacher Camp Badges 3D GameLab® is also an educator learning community where we connect in the guild site, and at online and synchronous events during teacher camp, experiencing and creating engaging quest-based learning. The Power of Quest-Based Learning™ Using 3DGL’s game mechanics, teachers learn to design, aggregate and track non-linear learning activities and pathways across multiple platforms and experiences, whether virtual, classroom-based or during informal learning events.

Life Vest Challenge | TryEngineering Lesson Focus Lesson explores the engineering behind life vests or personal flotation devices and the challenges met by these devices. Students work in teams to design and build a flotation device out of everyday materials that can keep an unopened can of soup or vegetables afloat in a bucket of water or sink for a minute. They design their life vest, build and test it, evaluate their designs and those of classmates, and share observations with their class. Age Levels: Objectives Learn about engineering design and redesign.Learn about personal floatation devices (PFDs).Learn how engineering can help solve society's challenges.Learn about teamwork and problem solving. Anticipated Learner Outcomes As a result of this activity, students should develop an understanding of: engineering designsafety and societyteamwork Lesson Activities Students explore how engineers have solved societal problems such as developing and improving equipment that helps save lives in water emergencies.
