Skyping Quantum about Minecraft

Today we skyped with the Scientists from Quantum Victoria. They are the organisation who set up the minecraft server for our students to work on, Minecraft-Mining for Science and Mathematics. It has been a very successful project. Simon has been such a great mediator that he was awarded as the first student minecraft moderator. It was an exciting moment for all of us but especially for Simon. It was a big surprise. We also took the opportunity to ask some of our minecraft questions. It has been a great learning experience for everyone involved and it is certainly challenging many of our Maths and Science skills. Thankyou Quantum Victoria.

  1. Hi,

    We are really excited to see your blog. We are Minecraft mad here at Quarry Hill Primary. We are in the process of building our class and are trying to go Quantum later in the year to do Minecraft.

    We would love to hear about the things you do on Minecraft.

  5. Thank you Joe and Alex,
    Yes many of my students are mad about mine craft. They play at home more than at school. I am sure that they could share some of their mine craft achievements with you. Thank you for your comments.

  6. This sounds like real fun . In our class I know that some people-like Luke and George- have minecraft. Also when they go on minecraft they skype andthey discus how they are doing and if they are strugaling. They say that minecraft is amazing because they can really have fun. I too hope to get minecraft soon.

  7. Hello,
    I have minecraft and I think that it is really fun to play! Also I think that it is a really great way to build up your maths skills because there are lots of numbers. I would love to skype some scientists because they would teach me some new things and it would just be amazing to see someone that is really good on it.

  8. It looks like you had a great time skyping with the scientists. I really enjoyed it when we had a scientist come into our classroom to do lots of different experiments. Did they tell you any experiments that you could do at home? I have never played minecrafts before maybe you could teach me how to play it! It sounds like a very interesting game to play!
    I would like to play this game one day! 🙂

  12. Did you have a good time playing with minecraft, here at High lawn lots of poeple play it. But we dont use it in school time, fortunatly sometimes we use it at after school clubs. Also somtimes I use it at home because I like building things. Although after a while it get boring.

  13. Hello Juniors Blackburn,
    That sounds like good fun! I really like skyping with people at school and it looks like you do too. I would love to skype with the scientists. Like Georgia said, a scientist came into our classroom and did lots of fun experiments with us. I really enjoyed that day. I have never played minecraft but maybe I will get to know how to play it soon!
    Carry on with your brilliant learning.

  14. I too have minecraft aswell as all of the others. It is really good, as George said for your maths hence a lot of number’s! My mum say’s i’m on it too much; although I don’t think that. I bet you had fun ‘Skyping’ with the scientists. What questions did you ask them?

  15. Hi KidsJig,
    This lesson\day, which you are describing sounds really fun and intresting. I know that some people in my class – like Tomasso said- have minecraft. Me and my class have skyped before with different classes around the world. They are usually are quad blogging team. Also we have skyped with Mrs Skinner (if you have ever heard of her, the 100 word challenge creater.) I have never ever played minecraft but I would love to but unfortunely I don’t know how to play it. Maybe you could do a post on how to play it. Brilliant post and brilliant pictures! I hope you had fun learning new things!

    Some of my friends-like Luke and George- have Minecraft but I have never felt like I wanted to get it as they described it really bad. It also looks like you had a great time!
    Even if the scientists weren’t on the reciving end of Skype, It would be great fun as I love Skype!

  17. WOW! I would LOVE to skype about Minecraft – I play Minecraft – the thing what I like about minecraft is the scenery I just love looking around and thinking of words to describe it! Despite it being a very fun thing for the class I am sure Simon enjoyed it the most. I agree with George that it would be amazing to skype with some scientists I think you could learn SO much. Please come and vist our blog

  18. Hi, I play on minecraft to – but it’s on my Xbox 360 – I find it EXTREMELY addictive. So far I have built a gargantuan diamond block house with a gold block flooring, attatched to a path that travels far out to sea in a checkered pattern! I can tell that you were very intruiged because pupils have said how they adore Minecraft. It looks like you had a fabulous time talking to the Minecraft people. From Ross at
