Don’t just play, create! Youth Digital’s online tech courses provide a safe, engaging learning environment for kids to master critical technology skills and learn professional software.
Why kids love it:
Kids will learn the basics of one of the most popular coding languages in the world as they modify real Java code to build their own Minecraft server. Students master programing concepts using Eclipse, a Java development tool pros use in the industry. Learning about object-oriented programming, methods and parameters, instantiation of new objects, and other introductory concepts, it is the perfect learning tool to prepare kids for the future in technology.
Interactive lessons are fun to watch and easy to follow!
I absolutely love this program. The instructional videos keep my child's attention and she's constantly learning. It never a fight to get her to do it either. My only complaint is that it says it's geared for as young as age 8. I can't see my 8 yr old doing this effectively. My 12 yr old is rocking it though.

Easiest investment in my child's education!
Sep 25, 2015
My 10 year old has picked up this course so fast! I sat down with him for the first lesson and noticed he worked so well independently so I left him alone and would check in here and there. And I have to admit, I'm not a mom who was overly thrilled that my son was obsessed with Minecraft, but I take that back now. This is a win-win as Youth Digital has made a game he thoroughly enjoys into an educational learning experience! Plus, their customer service is exceptional! We will definitely look into purchasing the course II. From one happy momma.
