Think of Minecraft as a classic version of block building.  Players create new environments, then go on adventures. 

Principal Crummey says there are a lot of benefits to the club.  Minecraft encourages exploration, problem solving, and working together.  The club is so popular, there is a waiting list. 

Eventually, students will be able to play Minecraft after school and at home.
