The West in Minecraft – School Resources Coming Soon!

The West in Minecraft – School Resources Coming Soon!

9 Jul 2021

If you could completely re-design your city, your street, your home, what would you do differently?

DETI Inspire at UWE have been exploring digitally engineering the West of England with local children, using the incredibly popular block-building video game Minecraft.

The West in Minecraft is a scale recreation of Bristol and Bath, a new ‘world’ in Minecraft, which allows local children to explore, build, re-design and re-engineer their very own cities!

A set of school resources to explore digital engineering using this new Minecraft world are currently being developed by the DETI Inspire team for release in the Autumn term 2021.

These 1-2 hour Minecraft lessons are being trialled with local primary schools, linking activities to the curriculum and drawing on several different subject areas to allow for a cross-curricular and rather unique learning experience.

If you are interested in receiving these teaching resources or having a session delivered at your school by a local STEM Ambassador next term, please contact us at
