RSVP for Minecraft Done Wright – Isthmus

press release: This introductory summer camp will cover the essentials of architecture and design while exploring the natural and built environment of the Taliesin Estate through the world of Minecraft.

Students will collaborate to build Wright-inspired homes and structures in Minecraft: Education Edition using Wright’s principles of design and living in nature.

The hub of this architectural studio will be the original drawing studio in the Hillside Home School building in Taliesin, where Wright and his apprentices built and created the model of Broadacre City themselves. The program will combine time spent building Minecraft with outdoor hikes on the Taliesin property for inspiration and classroom discussion about sustainable living.

Our small class sizes allow us to walk students through design processes, building on their skills and inspiring them to explore beyond. Students will study Wright’s blueprints and photographs of famous homes and projects to translate into Minecraft.

Classes will be led by a Microsoft Minecraft Global Mentor who has been teaching middle school classes using Minecraft: Education Edition since 2015.

Technology required: Laptop or tablet with Minecraft Education software downloaded before the student’s first day of camp. Detailed instructions will be sent one week before camp.

Scholarships: Scholarships are available for camps and will be awarded at $120 each. The scholarship deadline is May 15, 2022.

Transport: Shuttle service from Middleton will be available for an additional $80 per week. Minimum of 7 students required for the shuttle to operate. Please contact us for more details.
