Engineering Minecraft

[Post updated for 2017]

This Saturday I’m running an activity around Minecraft at the university Science and Engineering Family Day. This post will have a link to some of the resources we’re using if families want to try them out at home.

    Thanks for the excellent demos today at the university Science and Engineering Day. Your team worked so hard and our children loved it!
    If you have time, we’d love a LIDAR map of Fordingbridge (SP6 1) if that would be possible. It would be a great tool for the local schools and scout groups when they’re learning about the local area.

    Hi there,

    thanks for a great event today! I have installed feed the beast mod installer and it seems to have installed correctly. Can I please ask, how do I launch it in minecraft?

      I’ll answer this one quickly, as it’s easy. FTB installs a new copy of Minecraft for every modpack. You launch it via the FTB launcher not from in the game. If you have a machine with more than 2Gb I strongly recommend upping the max memory config option in the FTB launcher..

      ps. thanks for coming it was a great day but we are all shattered!

    Hi everyone I ‘m a bit shattered and will work through any messages over the next few days. I have to hand-approve them to stop spam so your message might not appear right away.
