Redstone Academy

What is redstone?  How can it be used?  This class will start with learning the basic redstone components and will move up to more complex projects such as combination locks, clocks, and more.

Each week you will watch a video focused on the concepts and designs possible with redstone.  The in-game build will then challenge you to apply what you have learned by creating your own redstone contraption that shows your understanding of the topics covered in that week. In addition to redstone, we will explore the various types of engineering and consider whether a career in engineering is a good fit for you.

Week 1 – Getting Started and Redstone Dust
Week 2 – Torches and Repeaters
