Howdy, podnah! Join a posse of Minecraft makers to build an old-fashioned Wild West town, complete with stables for horses, mines for gold digging, and town buildings to hang out in.
In each session, kids collaborate to complete community building challenges on EDMOtopia, EDMO’s multiplayer Minecraft server. Not only will they practice fundamental computer skills such as mouse manipulation, keyboard shortcuts, and 3D spatial reasoning, but also engage in Social Emotional Learning activities centered on respect, empathy, collaboration, and digital etiquette.
