Created by the DETI Inspire team at the University of the West of England

The West in Minecraft educational resources take a digital, play-based approach to support children to develop their own ideas and problem-solving skills, and engage with engineering as a creative and diverse subject that can impact the world around us.

These lessons are centred around the popular block-building video game Minecraft, and use a newly developed ‘Bristol & Bath world’ called The West in Minecraft to allow children to explore, build, re-design and re-engineer their very own cities!

This resource pack includes a detailed lesson plan for KS2 and KS3, which can be delivered online or in the classroom, curriculum-linked worksheets and challenges which draw on several different subjects including Design and Technology, Geography and Science, with links to local engineering innovations and iconic locations including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Roman Baths and SS Great Britain!
