A Game Design Project from the G4C Student Challenge
By Damon, Lucas, Samay, and Jason
Middle School Students from Mouse @ Stephen A Halsey JHS 157 Q
About this Project:
Game platform: Minecraft
Description: This is our city that represents diversity. We have a big tower that has floors that represent multiple cultures. We also have a dam for renewable energy that is good for our city. In the tree house, there is a mini game that represents racial community.
Cities with diversity and renewable energy are important because they make a big impact on the world. Without cities with renewable energy the amounts of pollution would be way higher since those cities would have to use gas instead. Diversity is also something that needs to be present in a society. Without diversity, people would struggle in the world without any variety and different people.
Directions: Take the boat to different buildings and see our diverse building, our dam, our bridge, our port, and tree house minigame.
Closing: I think it will teach people that diverse and renewable energy cities are great. Our city makes diversity look interesting with the diverse building.

This is a super cool idea and I love seeing you use a medium that is unique and fun. I would suggest looking into how you can make the lessons learned from viewing this city actionable. How can users take action on this information? I would love to see resources on how users can embrace a more diverse mindset or sustainability. Overall, I love this project and I can't wait to see more one day :)
