Kids Learn to Code in Java by Making Mods for Minecraft
Youth Digital's mission is to teach kids real software coding and design skills by creating awesome projects with cutting-edge technology.
In our most popular online course, kids will learn the fundamentals of Java programming by creating their own Minecraft Mod for the PC / Mac version of Minecraft. For every item, block or creature they want to add, kids will first design and then code their object in Java. At the end of the course, they will have their own completed Minecraft Mod that they created from scratch.
Mod Design 1 for Minecraft is a unique opportunity for young students to learn Java in an exciting way. They will not only come away with an impressive project to share with their friends, but also with a foundational knowledge of object-oriented programming.
In order to get started Modding, students first download and install Eclipse (a professional programming tool), and Java version 1.7. We install a static version of Java so that if Java updates, it will not disrupt the course technology and user experience.
Additionally, we use Minecraft version 1.6.4 to teach students how to create their own mod. We use this version instead of the most recent 1.8 version because more recent updates would not be as stable or consistent for our students long-term. While we teach our students program using the code base for Minecraft 1.6.4, they can export their project to the latest 1.8 version at the end of the course.

Basic Programming and Problem Solving in Python
As one of the most widely used programming languages in the software industry, Python is desirable to both learn and teach. Introduction to Programming Using Python is designed for students eager to learn about the world of programming. Applicable to a range of skill levels, this First Edition textbook provides students with the tools to harness the powerful syntax of Python and understand how to develop computer programs.
The compactly written text leverages highly focused chapters, diving deep into the most significant topics to give students an in-depth (rather than superficial) understanding of the language. Using real-world examples and data, the author illustrates practical usage of Python in a way to which students can relate. The text itself is readable, organized, and informative, discussing main points of each topic first and then addressing the peripheral details. Students learn good programming habits the first timeâbringing them in line with the best modern programming practices.
Personalize Learning with MyProgrammingLab
MyProgrammingLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results.
