Building a Roller Coaster in Minecraft


From the Set 21st Century Skills Innovation Library

Using the fun, interactive world of Minecraft and key concepts in STEAM, two teachers developed the Minecraft and STEAM series to be used in and out of the classroom. In Minecraft and STEAM, students discover that Minecraft isn't just a game, it's a tool that can be used to learn about real-world science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Building a Roller Coaster in Minecraft focuses: Science on science but includes other STEAM concepts in the sidebars. Includes table of contents, glossary, index, sources for further reading, and an extension activity.
