Lumen Minecraft module to teach renewable energy to housebound students for Earth Day

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.
