Minecraft Education Lumen City Challenge 

Inspired for Earth Day in April this year, Minecraft Education’s Lumen City Challenge are available to existing Minecraft: Education Edition Users and Minecraft Bedrock players and immerses students into Lumen city where they are responsible for selecting energy resources as they manage cost, revenue, pollution, and the happiness of their citizens. As students try to build their ideal city, they learn valuable lessons about what constitutes renewable and non-renewable energy, the challenges of energy storage, and the delicate balance between cost, power output, and pollution. Through this project, learners will come to understand the effects of energy sources on the world around them and build a deeper appreciation for the difficulty of managing our cities and towns.
