Product Description

Did you know kids can learn how to code by modifying (or "modding") Minecraft ®? LearnToMod is a browser-based software that teaches students how to mod using Blockly and Javascript on the Mac OS or Windows version of Minecraft ®.  Designed for children in 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, 7th grade, and 8th grade.  Ages 7 years old - 14 years old.

LearnToMod was awarded a $750k grant from the The National Science Foundation in August 2016 to teach millions of kids computer science!

Who is it for?

Students as young as 7 years old learn how to code by modding their own private Minecraft server that they can share with friends.  

Why buy?

LearnToMod is the perfect way to channel your child's passion for Minecraft towards a skill that they can nurture and develop as they grow up. Professions in computer science are not only some of the highest paying jobs out there, they are also some of the highest satisfaction jobs! Because computer science isn't being taught in most schools, these jobs are ripe for the taking.


What is included?

Tutorials, videos, and puzzles guide students through basic and complex mod building; soon students will be dreaming up and creating their own mods from scratch. Today's purchase will give your student access to the LearnToMod software and their own private Minecraft for 1 year.

Modding Studio
The studio is where you bring your ideas to life with code. It's where you write your mods. You get to choose from two powerful programming languages. You can even share your code with others and remix code that others have written.

LearnToMod teaches modding Minecraft with both Blockly and Javascript. Blockly is a drag-and-drop programming language, as powerful as any other programming language, but accessible to students as young as 7. Javascript, of course, is one of the most commonly used typed programming languages in the world.

Private Server
Test your mods on a private server. Invite friends to play too. You control everything about your server: The weather, the time of day, who's banned and who's not. You can install texture packs. And, of course, you can mod it with mods you've written.

Lessons
Even if you've never coded before, you can learn to mod. We have hundreds of video lessons, puzzles, and quizzes to teach you. Unlock cool badge and start leveling-up as a coder. Soon you'll be designing and coding multi-player mini-games of your own.

Please note:

  • You need internet to use the software (it's browser-based.) You also need internet to access the private Minecraft server.
  • You need a copy of the Mac OS or Windows version of Minecraft if you plan to mod on the private Minecraft server. This can be purchased here
  • Any laptop or desktop computer running Windows or Mac is compatible with the software. The software does not work on Chromebooks, tablets, or Linux machines yet.

How it works

After completing your purchase on Educents.com, you'll receive a unique access key by email. You can then use that code to activate your one-year LearnToMod subscription. If you plan to give LearnToMod as a Christmas present, download this gift card and paste your access key in before printing!

    Fun way to learn about coding!
    Mar 18, 2016

    I purchased this for my two oldest boys (then ages 15 and 11). They have used this product almost daily and have learned how to change things in their Minecraft worlds. Almost a year later, they are still actively spending time in the Learn to Mod Minecraft program. I have recommended this to friends. I found it is a great way to encourage a way to learn code while playing a well-known and fun game of Minecraft.
