Can we design the future city of Adelaide in Minecraft?


Adelaide City Council Minecraft Challenge

The Adelaide city council has developed two Minecraft worlds depicting the city of Adelaide. Their challenges encourage students to design a future Adelaide either from 1836 when Surveyor-General Colonel William Light selected Adelaide as the new colony for South Australia, or Adelaide 2021 post-COVID-19 pandemic. Register at this link to download the Minecraft Education Edition of these worlds.
