Computer Capers are hosting Minecraft Freeplay!

The Minecraft meet up Holiday Program was designed by IT teacher Robert Walker after identifying a need to cater to kids that are motivated and orientated by technology and design. If you haven’t heard about Minecraft, it’s a computer game that uses virtual building blocks and teams with opportunities for creative problem-solving. Like it or loathe it, nothing will change the fact that kinds love building online worlds where they are only limited by their imagination.
