Here is a neat little trick for Minecraft Pi: Edition taught to me by my students:
In Minecraft Pi edition, there is a way to load custom maps made for the Pocket Edition (PE) version of Minecraft – including Survival maps! Technically you are still in creative mode (Currently, as of writing this blog, there is no support for survival mode in the Pi edition) however, by installing a survival map, you will get night and day modes, animals, crops and even treasure chests. – See more at: http://teachwithict.weebly.com/computing-blog/minecraft-pi-edition-survival-mode-ish#sthash.S6XeUUDH.sNrbzmqe.dpuf
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
