About this course

Galacticraft goes boldly where no Minecraft mod has gone before: space. Students will get to explore new planets, collect resources, build energy sources, and survive in the far reaches of the galaxy. It's a wonderful adventure that's completely unique when compared to other Minecraft mods. There is a simple and straightforward path that focuses on a linear progression as student’s explore the solar system. More importantly, throughout the game, students are introduced to real world astronomy and space exploration that dates back to the Voyager probes that left our planet in the late 1960’s.

What you'll learn

In addition to the endless fun, creativity and collaboration that building in Minecraft provides, this course is designed to provide students with the fundamentals of Astronomy and humankind’s history of reaching for the stars.  Each lesson will begin with a famous astronomer that starts in the 15th century with Nicolaus Copernicus and extends to James Webb and the space telescope named after him to be launched in November, 2021.

End-of-Course Project: A completed Mars Colony with a full complement of sustainable resources to support a human civilization of the future.  

Materials & Homework

Prerequisites for the students:

  • Mac or PC (no Chromebook or iPads) with a 3-button mouse that can run Minecraft with several mod packs installed.  Each student will have an appointment with Charles Rotenberg to ensure everything is running properly before the start of the course.  It’s recommended that students purchase their own Minecraft account, however if parents have concerns about play time, a temporary account can be assigned for the duration of the course.
  • Students must be able to share their screens and have their cameras on for better collaboration and for troubleshooting and installation problems.
