What Will I Learn with Coding in Minecraft?

You will learn to use a repeat loop to command your Agent to build a square.

About Course

Use the companion app MakeCode to code your Agent to create a unique square with any blocks you choose.

Guiding Ideas for Coding

In Minecraft: Education Edition, the Agent is your own personal Robot! You can create programs to make him move, build or dig for you in the game.

In this lesson, we will create basic commands we can use for our Agent.

To do this, we will use a special event in Microsoft MakeCode called the “On Chat Command” which is a helpful way to teach students about functions.

Performance expectations

  • Students should be able to explain how you would add height to their existing structure.
  • They should be able to demonstrate how to change the shape of the structure.

Student Activities in Coding

The first command we will create is to teleport our Agent to our Player. Next, let’s add some commands to make your Agent move around!
