Teaching Reaction Times with Minecraft

Minecraft Club has come to Legacy Academy.  We are happy to join the many great schools around the world that are using this powerful creative tool to teach a wide variety of topics.  We hope that we will be able to create a fun after school club where students have time to explore and create new worlds, work together, discover science concepts and learn powerful computer skills.  It is a really great time!
