Asked by a Parent on November 26th, 2016
Will this help us to create our own mods in any way that we want? I am 14 on Friday and I am going to have my own server soon but first I am going to want to make my own mods. I just want to know if this will go over all possible mod creations or will it just teach us how to do certain code according to what the lesson it telling us to do?

Great question! Mod Design 1 will teach you all the skills you need to create your own unique Mods - we give you the steps but you can use what you learn to create anything you can dream up from armor, weapons, ore, and mobs! Great to hear you're going to get your own server as well... after you've worked through Mod Design 1 check out Server Design 1 which teaches you everything you need to know to create your own private Minecraft server to share with family and friends!
My daughter is 9 and completed the lessons in a couple of weeks, doing multiple hours of lessons a day, because she loved it so much. They do a great job of breaking down the coding into manageable chunks for kids. If they run into trouble they can chat with someone, or just run through the lesson again. Coding helped her start to pay attention to detail; every bit of punctuation matters - this helped her language arts skills! Since she still has access to the course, she goes back in and makes more stuff for Minecraft every week and gets a refresher from the lessons as she needs it. It's great for parents who don't know much about coding; we learned some of it from the course to help her initially, but now she's completely independent. It's perfect for kids like mine who are obsessed about Minecraft. It's amazing what they will learn when motivated.
