One of the courses we offer is Minecraft Redstone. Redstone is used in Minecraft to transmit electrical signals. It is found at the bottom of mines – you can use the collected redstone dust to build circuits. Various Redstone components can be placed to form the logic gates and other systems that form the organization of integrated circuits – most notably the CPU found at the center of modern computers.
A good understanding of these logic components, and how they interact, provides a solid foundation for understanding how computer hardware works. We offer a Redstone course at our main campus in Morrisville, and will soon have an online offering as well.
