Minecraft, a “sandbox” game by Mojang based on building blocks, has taken the world by storm as one of the top-selling PC games of all time—over 100 million people have registered worldwide. Players traverse vast landscapes of mountains, forests, caves, and various water bodies. Their characters hunt, sail, and farm while constructing homes and objects by breaking and placing textured cubes in a 3D world. It is the epitome of creativity—limitless opportunity to build, discover, and problem-solve.

In recent years, the benefits of Minecraft have come to light, with the game gaining traction as an educational tool—acknowledged by many as an important vehicle for engaging kids and teens in STEM fields such as coding, video game design and development, level design, and more
