Island Innovation Minecraft World File
Spawn next to the 1st of 3 villages on the coastal zone ripe for island development and mining sand etc...
Dubai Palm Islands - Anticipatory Set Video
Get creativity flowing and spark new ideas using this video that shows an overview of Dubai's success stories with island innovation.

What skills are involved in designing and creating man-made islands like world leader Dubai?
How much earth needs to be mined to create the innovative island designs safely?
Can students work as teams to design both islands and creative structures / purposes for the islands?
Are there innovative new designs that Dubai has yet to employ?
Students will choose or be assigned one of the three+ coastal villages. They will mine from the land to build in the water new innovative island designs like Dubai. Students should perhaps have a quick look at Youtube Dubai projects to both inspire and inform them before their engineering begins.
Students will design, mine, build and then create a purpose and structures for the islands that were created. Tourism hotels or resorts? Science research? Residential homes? Other Ideas?
Students will collaborate as a village team to mine materials needed for island development
Students will design an innovative pattern for the islands
Students will build that design focussing on safety, beauty and maximizing land space
Students will collaboratively determine a purpose for the islands and build appropriate structures.

Thanks Ahmad! I've always been fascinated by Dubai Innovation :)

Looks like a really good idea !! One thing I have found is the lack of gravity for blocks in Minecraft, therefore need to discuss with children that the foundations need to be supportive to the ground. Used a model made out of paper as an example before we started. Seeing the foundations for those built in Dubai are useful to show this as well.

Great idea. I as well have found students thinking the islands are floating instead of understanding the engineering needed to anchor and support these new land masses. It really is next level STEM education and Minecraft is a beautiful platform for exploring what's possible!
