This spring break the Fleet Science Center and ThoughtSTEM have come together to bring you the ultimate week of camp that brings computer science and coding to life. With the new Marvel Avengers movie right around the corner, we’ve designed coding projects that teach students how to modify Minecraft to include features of their favorite Marvel comics. Each day you will learn how to code a different project, each more exciting than the last. You do not have to take all of the courses, but taking more than one will put you on the way to becoming a true Computer Hero!

March 26 – Marvel Blocks

Design and code your own Marvel themed blocks in Minecraft and then use them to craft your own landscape and structures!

March 28 – Marvel Super Powers

Recreate classic Marvel super hero powers, like Hulk's super strength or Rocket the raccoon's blaster. Or make up your own super powers that you can try out on your friends (or your enemies…)

March 29 – Marvel Mobs
