I run a STEM-based class in an after school program that is held within a public school. As my program starts up, I have been researching the possibility of using Minecraft as a teaching tool and I am really excited by the opportunities that can come from that! Unfortunately, the internet filter system at the school blocks a lot of things, one of them being Minecraft. Has anyone else dealt with this problem? Any suggestions in regards to getting past this so I can connect my kids to awesome programs like Minecraft?
