Heck, some guy made a working computer out of Minecraft, but we can send rockets to Pluto!!

Who needs computers in a computer when you only need one computer to send stuff into space?

I saw a video where someone built a computer in Minecraft and played KSP on it :D

Not a joke, here's the (or one of the) video(s):

Not sure how he did it though, I don't play Minecraft :P

it's either world of minecraft ... but may be it's time for world of yourcraft or world of ourcraft ...

minecraft is a plague ... 1929 cc share alike within the name ... aside that ... what's inside is interesting ... but the title glitch a lot ...

The true question is HOW?!

Yeah. How the heck could Minecraft be educational. There is literally nothing educational about it except for using your imagination to create and build things.

Redstone circuits?  And various other logic that some of Minecraft mods add.

But if you're going to do that, you should grab Infinifactory.edu, which doesn't actually exist but ought to.

Sorry to break it to ya' but... redstone doesn't exist in real life ( Sorry if this appears rude. )

Maybe not educational, but it's thought provoking and a good start to get kids thinking creativley.

Redstone helps kids start thinking about logic circuits and tends to be fairly challenging. I would argue that KSP is much more educational, but Minecraft is still a pretty nifty thing.

I loved minecraft. Played vanilla at least 1500 hours over the years. And modded at least 750 hours over the years as well. Not counting the hundreds of hours of youtube content I have watched on it. :P

Sure it does.  It's called "wire".  Which is what redstone and redstone components are an analog for... teaching basic electronics and logic concepts to kids.

Ah, gotcha :)

How did we get this far off topic on a dead forum?

I love KSP, and I love my science class. I'm planning on telling my principal to distribute this, how do I explain it? I mean, how can it be used in the classroom? They use MinecraftEDU, so I think they'd consider it.

Well, KSP is a great medium to learn about forces, and momentum. It can teach anybody regardless of age. It furthermore promotes innovative thinking and engineering, which can then be utilized in critical thinking and further interests in the topic of physics.
