Minecraft for the Atari Generation
Thursday, September 28, 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm Online
Do your kids play Minecraft... or watch others play on YouTube? Are you concerned with their sudden obsession? Does it feel like they're speaking a foreign language? Are you flummoxed by the cubist screen?
If yes, this is the program for you!
Get a basic Minecraft primer at the Library! Experienced gamer Julian Butcher will walk us briefly through the games' origins, history and objectives. You'll gain an understanding of Minecraft terms like "bedrock," "java", "mods," and "skins," and become familiar with the creative and educational possibilities of the game. Learn how to safely shepherd your children's Minecraft adventures and discover useful resources for further family investigations and fun!
Presenter Julian Butcher (he/him) is part of the circulation staff at the Wayland Public Library. He has (too much) experience playing Minecraft and other video games, and has a M.S. in physics from Brandeis University.
This program is free, but preregistration is required HERE.
