​What is Minecraft Education?

Minecraft is an open-world game that promotes creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving in an immersive environment where the only limit is your imagination. Minecraft Education differs from the regular video game version as it is aimed for use in the classroom and contains features such as classroom mode and assessment tools that enable powerful learning experiences.

Challenge Information

All CBE students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 and teachers have access to Minecraft Education and are invited to participate in the system-wide challenge. Students in Grades 1-12 can choose from 4 different build sites including: Calgary Public Library, Fort Calgary, Sien Lok Park and Green Line LRT. Kindergarten students have a unique literacy task waiting for them.

Teachers will have access to an Educator’s Guide, exemplars with connections to the Alberta Program of Studies, and ongoing professional learning sessions. Parents wishing to learn more about how Minecraft: Education Edition supports learning may access the Parent Guide.

Teachers will guide students through the challenge and submit work to each school’s Minecraft challenge designate. If your child is working on their own or with the support of their parents and/or guardians, please contact your child’s teacher or principal who will connect you with the Minecraft challenge designate for your school.

​Submission Process and Winning Designs

Winning entries will be announced in May, 2023. As a commitment to this work, the City of Calgary has provided four sites for this challenge. A panel of community experts will select student prototypes from each category to inform the design of real-world public spaces.​


While Minecraft: Education Edition is available on CBE-owned devices, it can also be installed on personal devices. Please visit the Minecraft Education download page for support on how to do this.
