Week 5: Minecraft Selfies

This week in my learning project I decided to use a Raspberry Pi.  A  Raspberry Pi is a small computer that promotes teaching basic computer science in schools.

This has been my first project with the Raspberry Pi.   There are numerous tutorials online that will work through how to code using a variety of different lessons.  This week I decided to look into one called Minecraft Selfies, as I was inspired by Meeno Rami’s guest appearance last week.  I decided to buy a Raspberry Pi camera module and experiment with Minecraft Pi.  Minecraft has its own free version on the Raspberry Pi.  This plays as normal Minecraft, but I can add some code to the game.

Check out what I did this week!

  1. This is neat stuff, I love watching things like this as it is a reminder of thee importance of diversity. This is way out of my scope, but I appreciate what you are learning and can see how this would be a tremendous addition for students. Keep up the good work!

  2. The more I learn about it, the more I realize the possibilities related to minecraft. Your work, Dean and the visit from Meenoo has really inspired me to take a deeper look at what it has to offer. Thanks for the inspiration! Keep up the good work.

  3. This is really neat Curtis! I haven’t heard of the Raspberry Pi and the Minecraft Education stuff is pretty new to me but I have been enjoying learning about it. I think the selfie addition was really cool. Keep up the great work. I look forward to your next post.
