Develop your child's creative thinking and problem solving skills these school holidays, with a four-day program centred around the popular video game Minecraft.

Minecraft Plus Plus will teach your child to use this video game to create new worlds, working with other children to overcome challenges and find solutions to obstacles. They'll learn how to solve logic puzzles, engineering problems, and machine design scenarios; there will also be elements of free-play, for an all-rounded, creative experience.
If your child is more of an indoor-type, and would prefer to solve puzzles and tinker on the computer than play sports, this is the program for them! They'll meet other children who are also passionate about games and puzzles, and get to work together to fuel their passion and enthusiasm for the subject.
Invent the World programs are a collaborative effort, combining engineering, programming, robotics, game design, and other disciplines, and making them accessible to all age groups.
