Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q) has launched its first virtual outreach program for high school students. Mindcraft Virtual is an online reimagining of CMU-Q’s popular Mindcraft program, which has introduced the field of computer science to nearly 5000 students since it began in 2016.
Mindcraft was created for high school students with a wide range of computer science backgrounds, from those with no experience at all, to those who have strong skills in programming. Each session covers two main topics: conceptual thinking and programming a robot. In Mindcraft Virtual, these topics are now done entirely with online tools.
