Dive into the blocky world of Minecraft on the Moon.

Explore the blocky world of Minecraft on the Moon! Young gamers will embark on an extraordinary journey, navigating the lunar landscape, mining for resources, and facing treacherous craters in this out-of-this-world experience. But watch out for space junk lurking around every corner! 

In this unique adventure, participants will encounter special mods and assets, offering a different kind of gameplay. They'll also learn to create their own Mods for Minecraft, expanding their gaming experience.

Can you defy the absence of gravity and reach base camp safely? Join us and find out!

During this action-packed workshop, participants will:

  • Need to be reasonably proficient at using basic keyboard functions.
  • Explore the 'To the Moon' exhibition for inspiration.
  • Design and create their own lunar landscape in a Minecraft world.
  • Craft their own Mod to enhance their gameplay.
  • Share their creations with fellow adventurers before taking them home on their USB.

Participants will play Minecraft on a PC, not a gaming console, so basic computer keyboard and mouse skills are necessary. All technical equipment will be provided, but bring a 4GB USB for downloading your work. Remember to pack a water bottle and lunch.
