At Pycon UK 2015, I did a couple of workshop at its Education Track Kids day.
It was great fun and to make sure there was something fresh for the children to get their teeth into I came up with a new exercise called “LavaTrap” so I thought I would share it!
You can download the worksheet which is great printed as an A5 booklet on a single piece of A4 or you can follow the exercise below.
The Lava Trap
Using Python and Minecraft: Pi edition we can change the game to do amazing things.
You are going to create mini game – a Lava Pit will instantly appear and Steve will be put at the centre of it, soon through the block he is standing on will disappear so he will have to move, but hang on all the blocks keep disappearing!
