Youth Minecraft (In-Person)

Youth Minecraft is a class designed to strengthen Minecraft development while promoting social and communication skills with peers (ages 7-12).

Minecraft is a class designed for participants to use interests in Minecraft to improve computer skills and to engage in socialization and peer relationship development skills in a non-threatening way. Skills and strategies for turn-taking, working collaboratively, and social problem solving will be targeted through team projects, missions, and goals. AutismUp Staff will support participants as much or as little as needed, challenging them to navigate Minecraft, practice programming skills, and improve technology savvy, while working in small groups.
