Challenge PDF document that provides the granularity for the steps of the Challenge
In this Challenge learners will work collaboratively to create a new Welsh Music Festival. Learners will research existing festivals held in Wales and any previous music festivals that have taken place. They will need to plan out the various elements of a music festival e.g. main stage, smaller stages, information point, main entrance.
Learners will then design the festival venue and create the festival in Minecraft: Education Edition. They will then make use of Minecraft: Education Edition features such as the chalkboard and NPCs (Non-Playing Characters) to share information about their festival, including hyperlinks to YouTube videos, Sway presentations or websites of artists.
The Challenge is made up of three distinct steps that will take approx. 3 hrs.

Learners should store information on one central document shared within a group of learners.

Learners will need to present information about the artists in a document / format that can be hyperlinked. (Sway, PowerPoint Online, Adobe Spark)
Learners will build their new venue using Minecraft: Education Edition and use features such as the chalkboard and NPCs to hyperlink to artists performance on YouTube and to the presentations created in Step Two.
