This holiday programme wasn’t a relaxed, laid back affair – this one really had children thinking. The challenge was to create an Eco-House using Minecraft.
We discussed the impact their house would have on the environment. This made the students think of the types of materials needed and how they could reduce the impact by utilizing their surroundings. Great discussions occurred, with the benefits of different materials and styles of buildings.
Many explored solar and wind power to create energy efficient houses. Others investigated the movement of water to create power.
One student harnessed the use of light sensors to store energy to allow his crops to still grow at night. Another created a wind turbine to light his house.
But the most interesting creation was an Eco Friendly Chicken House using a chickhouse nuclear reactor! See his amazing creation:
