Avon High School Students for Minecraft started this petition to Avon School Corporation and

Main Idea:

Us students at AHS are requesting to have a class made, to use the educational benefits, from the popular game/learning software Minecraft.  We want to be able to use Minecraft Education Edition in the school.  We think this would benefit the students, letting them be more creative and teaching them how to code.

Reasons we think Minecraft would be a great class as an intro to coding:

In Minecraft Education Edition, there are objects called command blocks.  In these command blocks, you are able to write easy code, and have the game do stuff based on the code you write.  This would get kids excited about coding, and let them see what they code, show up in real time.

Reasons we think Minecraft would help improve creativity:

In Minecraft, you can build almost anything your mind can think up.  In conjunction with this, you can play with friends.  With your friends, you can build and code together to make even more epic creations, all while learning.

Cost:

Minecraft Education Edition is relatively cheap for all that it comes with.  It is $5 USD per student, per year.  This could be added to the book rental fee at the beginning of the year.
