About the Event

Cyberport and Let’s Code take pride to jointly organise this world-class educational event “Cyberport Minecraft Education Symposium – CODE, STEM and A.I. in Hong Kong this summer!
This symposium aims at bringing together leaders, educators and influencers in the Minecraft domain from different parts of the world to share cross-cultural knowledge and experience with our local educators, industry practitioners and users. How Minecraft will empower coding, STEM education, as well as A.I. will be thoroughly discussed. The power and unlimited potentials of Minecraft in education and unlimited are to be unleashed from it!

Why Minecraft education?

With more than 100 million players worldwide, Minecraft is much more than a game about breaking and placing blocks where players construct a virtual landscape alone or with friends, building structures and fending off monsters along the way. It is increasingly being introduced into the classroom, allowing teachers to customize lessons and students to engage with concepts in a wide variety of ways, ushering in a new direction in coding and STEM education
