About This Course

Unlock the power of sound in Minecraft! Whether you’re stomping around, blowing up TNT traps, or any other way you make a ruckus, it can help you unleash and evolve your Redstone contraptions! 1.18 brought many new blocks to the game, one of which is the Skulk Sensor. This sensing block can detect sounds and react to noisy players, but it can also be used to create “wireless” redstone signals. You can design areas where people can’t help but to get loud and build new contraptions to help or hinder them through your adventure maps. Unlock the secrets of the Skulk Sensor (and more redstone devices) to create new experiences and bring your maps and adventures into the future.

Tools: Minecraft Java Edition

Frequently Asked Questions

Wireless redstone sensors, sometimes called “skulk” sensors, are stealthy, sophisticated Minecraft features that take gameplay and design to a new level. Read up on more Minecraft terms.

This course encourages kids to think like game designers or programmers, rather than just players, opening doors to STEM. Minecraft game design promotes creativity, problem-solving, self-direction, and collaboration—all of which stand out as valuable benefits that gaming can provide.

The market value of the gaming industry is over $151.06 billion dollars, with steady growth predicted through 2027. Your child could be the next big name in game design, and if their STEM journey leads them elsewhere, they will still build valuable digital literacy skills. Tech literacy is key to success with 21st century skills, and yes those skills can be fun to learn!

This course is intended for students who have completed a related course or have equivalent experience. With our small class sizes, each student will continue to receive individual attention and learn at their own pace.
