MINECRAFT IS BACK! Think Minecraft is just a video game? Think again! Create, explore and put your problem-solving skills to the test, with step by step instructions construct your own village complete with a thriving population, housing, machinery, food production and much more. Then use the Redstone feature to brighten up your experience. Many schools – even universities – are adopting the Minecraft platform to help with reading, writing, maths and science. There has never been a better time to develop your STEM skills (science, technology, engineering and maths) through coding and game design.
William Colglazier is a 12 year old, American entrepreneur from Silicon Valley, in California.

William’s app utilizes open data – data generated by and available to the public sector – which is becoming popular and used for a number of purposes ranging from tourism to government accountability. William launched his first start up, WillCcreations.com, in 2015 at the young age of eleven, as a vehicle for his Minecraft design courses. From 2014-2016, William lived in Cape Town, SA and attended Reddam House School in Constantia.
