  1. Students will be creating a Minecraft build and showcasing it through a screen captured 3-minute video. 
  2. The final build should show a new or existing Kentucky Derby Festival event.
  3. It should be as detailed as possible with community impacts and connections. This is YOUR festival!
  4. A team can be one or more students with no more than 10 students per team.
  5. This project can be configured to any scale that the participants deem manageable. 
  6. Please refer to the scoring rubric on slide 6 of this document for specific scoring categories and the Finished Product section for a description of what should be included in your completed project.
  7. The video should capture the student(s) providing a step-by-step walkthrough of important features of the Minecraft build that is recorded live from the device screen using the software of the team’s choosing.  
  8. Narration can occur as a voice-over in synch with the video, utilize well-timed on-screen titles to describe features, or a combination of both.



All content in the build should be original work created by the student(s). Students may use MinecraftEDU or the regular PC/Mac version of Minecraft, or the iOS (iPad) version, as long as a screen recording can be captured. 

Use only the default texture pack. Mods are not allowed.
