This week the group will learn about Minecraft and 3D curriculum that debuted this summer at the Champaign-Urbana Community Fab Lab. Students (ages 8-14) rendered images using Microsoft's Xbox Kinect 3D camera, imported these images to a Minecraft world, modified the image components, and then 3D printed the final product. Participants learned several other Minecraft world rendering programs which taught them real world applications. The week ended with students working collaboratively to create their own Minecraft city.
