Why We Play Minecraft

Overview

Session info

Minecraft is a popular sandbox video game that involves the acquisition and use of resources in the form of blocks to craft and build structures. The game has received much praise and awards and is one of the highest-ranked games of all time across the age pyramid. It not only encourages creative construction but also gives players a power-packed experience of survival from building domestic shelters or mansions to defending themselves from mobs and driving away pillagers.

One of the biggest contributors to the game's popularity is the flexibility and creative license it gives to players to explore, discover, and be their self-recruited one person army!

Random House confirms that it is a great educational tool and an incredible medium of inspiration for kids. The online platform AutCraft uses the game to help children and youth with autism and their families.

In this session of Kids Talk, kids from Mango Science Club, who also happen to be pro players of Minecraft, will be discussing why they play the game, what they learn from it, and also give their opinion on if others should play the game! Join us for an exciting panel discussion and learn from young minds.

The video-conference will happen over Zoom. We request the registrants to use the latest version of the application (5.0.1 that has enhanced security features) on their desktop/laptop/mobile phone.
