Unlock the power of Minecraft for learning!

Minecraft is a game where you dig (mine) and build (craft) various types of blocks in a three-dimensional environment. Players can explore, build creative structures and solve problems both individually or in groups.
What you can do in Minecraft is only limited by your imagination!

MinecraftEdu is an educational version of Minecraft designed to make it easier to use in schools. It includes various controls and services to make Minecraft more useful and appropriate in the classroom. It also includes a library of lessons and activities.
