CBE Minecraft Design Challenge

Level Up Calgary Season 3: Parks & Portals​

​What is Minecraft Education?

Minecraft Education is an open world game-based learning tool that promotes creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving in an immersive environment where the only limit is your imagination. Minecraft Education differs from the regular video game version as it is aimed for use in the classroom and contains features such as classroom mode and assessment tools that enable powerful learning experiences.

Challenge Information

All CBE teachers and students in kindergarten to Grade 12 have access to Minecraft Education and are invited to participate in the system-wide challenge. Students in grades 1-12 can choose from two new build sites including Haultain Park and a Green Line LRT portal. This season also features new Indigenous resources and a new Early Learning task for kindergarten children. 

Teachers will guide students through the challenge and submit work to each school's Minecraft challenge designate. 

If your child is working on their own or with the support of their parents/guardians, please contact your child's teacher or principal who will connect you with the Minecraft challenge designate for your school. There is a Parent Guide with more information and to assist parents who are supporting learners using Minecraft Education. 

​Submission Process and Winning Designs

Winning entries will be announced in spring 2024. As a commitment to this work, the City of Calgary has provided two sites for this challenge. A panel of community experts will select student prototypes from each category to inform the design of real-world public spaces.​


While Minecraft Education is available on CBE-owned devices, it can also be installed on personal devices. Please visit the Minecraft Education download page for support on how to do this.
