Today marks the first day of Computer Science Education Week. Microsoft and Code.org have released a new Minecraft Coding tutorial to inspire all young people to try coding. This tutorial was created by “Minecraft” game designers at Mojang and Microsoft, in partnership with Code.org.

The Minecraft Hour of Code Designer teaches students to create their own “Minecraft” experience where they can program the rules. Students use Code.org’s familiar drag-and-drop coding interface to learn computer science concepts such as object-oriented programming, event handlers and repeat loops. Students face a series of 12 challenges, culminating in creating their own simple game, which they can share with friends.

Check out the tutorial here. Read more about Microsoft’s commitment to Computer Science Education in this post.
