Electronics with Minecraft Redstone (STEM exCEL)


Electronics with Minecraft Redstone allows students to explore electronics in a virtual world with essentially infinite resources. Using Minecraft’s system of wires called Redstone, students can build constructs representing electrical circuits and simple computer projects that are built in the real world. This course is a great precursor for students to get an initial understanding of circuitry, electronics and electrical theory to understand virtually how real circuits, switches, bread boards, etc. are used. This course allows students to gain an understanding of how computers are processing commands as they move on to other computer science studies.
