Description:Minecraft is very much like a lucid dream. A lucid dream is no ordinary dream. In a lucid dream one has the same self-awareness as when awake. Subsequently one has conscious control over what happens in a lucid dream. Minecraft is a so called open world in which the player picks her own destiny. There are very few restrictions on what one may do in one’s domain. A network server may also be used to enable one to share one’s world with other players.

In this workshop we will introduce you to Minecraft. Instruction will indicate how to install the software, create an avatar and explore a domain. There are certain things one must do as soon as one creates a domain, such as setting up a home, finding food and being able to distinguish between friend and foe. Once each student has been set up and had a chance to explore a bit, we will take a look at two advanced topics: 1) Modding Minecraft with the Java high-level programming language; and 2) Creating texture packs.
