Adventures in Minecraft is an ongoing social gaming group where enthusiasts of all ages can come together to craft, build and adventure on a dedicated Minecraft server. Each meeting will open and close with a group discussion where we will set project goals and reflect on our progress. Newcomers and veterans are welcome to join. This group is lead by two instructors who not only love playing Minecraft, but also enjoy sharing how the game can be used and explored as a tool for creativity, teamwork, and even computer programming!
Want to check out the server? Desktop or laptop users can enter "technocopia.builders" in the Minecraft multiplayer server address bar to see what we've done so far. *New visitors will not be able to interact with the world until an administrator gives them permission to do so.
About the Facilitators
Alex Camilo graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute's Robotics Engineering program in 2010. At around the same time he worked with Kevin Harrington to develop the DyIO hardware module for the Bowler Robotics software platform. He then worked with the WPI Automation and Interventional Medicine (AIM) lab to design robotics control hardware that was used in two surgeries on patients inside an MRI. In 2013 he helped found Technocopia with Nick Bold and Kevin Harrington. Alex maintains the electronics station at Technocopia, and is often modding and creating electronics and programming tools.
Adam Zelny is a multimedia composer and educator in the fields of 3D and 2D design, music, technology and literature. He briefly studied art and writing at Fitchburg State University and Mount Wachusett Community College before taking long term jobs with social service organizations in the Worcester area. It was during this time he discovered a love for teaching through subjects like language arts, history and music, and group therapy activities which included drum circles and meditation sessions. In 2008 he joined Worcester Think Tank as an after school creative writing teacher which helped launch a new career as a freelance educator, mentor and artist. Still heavily involved with Think Tank, Adam also spends time as a music tutor, videographer, graphic designer, and volunteers as an Education Director at the Technocopia makerspace in downtown Worcester. He loves a good video game (usually medieval and sci-fi), and enjoys creating and listening to all types of music.
