In celebration of Earth Day, EIT InnoEnergy will make Lumen’s interactive challenges on sustainable energy free to play via Minecraft: Education Edition
Together with Minecraft and Blockworks, EIT InnoEnergy has made Lumen, a game based learning module that teaches youth about sustainable energy, available via Minecraft: Education Edition to celebrate Earth Day 2020. The announcement comes as more than 1.5 billion students are affected by school closures worldwide due to COVID-19. The need for challenging, engaging digital learning experiences has never been more important.
The module, initially developed for 9 to 15-year-olds by EIT InnoEnergy in partnership with KU Leuven and Minecraft creator Blockworks, teaches children about the fundamental concepts of energy, which can then be applied to build a sustainably powered Minecraft city. The module includes immersive worlds created by the Minecraft master builders at Blockworks, as well as lessons in sustainable energy.
